EMBA students tackle white water rapids

Executive MBA students launch two-year course with rafting adventure

Cass's new Executive MBA cohort launched their two-year course with a white water rafting adventure at London's Olympic water sports park.

As part of their induction weekend students pitted themselves against the rapids at the Lee Valley Centre, in a team-building exercise

This event marked the beginning of Cass's Executive MBA; a personal and professional development programme that allows students to study while continuing with full-time employment.

This year's EMBA cohort is made up of students from 13 different countries, including the United States, Singapore, China and India.

Dr Sionade Robinson, Associate Dean of MBA Programmes, said: "This was a good way to bring students together at the start of the course on which they will form relationships that will stay with them throughout their careers."

Students travelled back to the Square Mile by a traditional red London Routemaster bus where they were entertained by a guide highlighting the many famous sights of the city.

In the evening they joined up with Cass academics at the Coq D'Argent restaurant overlooking the City of London for a formal dinner to officially celebrate the start of their MBA.
