The Dean's Message

Dear Cass Community,Professor Paolo Volpin

As 2019 draws to a close, I’d like to reflect on our achievements and look forward to the New Year.

Our reputation for world-class research continues to grow, featuring in leading journals across all fields, contributing to policy-making and informing world business leaders with practical insights.

Our contribution to education continues to be held in the highest regard around the world. Combined with the persistent strength of our MSc in Finance and MSc in Management, the recent Financial Times Executive MBA rankings represented our strongest global position for the programme in nearly a decade.

Thank you to all academic and professional staff for helping us achieve these excellent results, and for your continued dedication towards our students and their experience here.

2020 will be another busy year. We will be completing our submissions to Athena SWAN in the spring and the REF at the end of the year, alongside the search for a permanent Dean. We will also be preparing for a likely expansion into the Finsbury Square building and remodelling of the Bunhill Row site.

I am looking forward to seeing these plans come together so that we can continue to be a leading global business school long into the future.

Seasonal greetings and a very happy New Year to all!

Paolo
