The Business School (formerly Cass) is one of City, University of London’s five Schools. Ranked 3rd in London, 6th in the UK and 25th in Europe (Financial Times European Business School ranking 2020), the Business School is part of an elite group of business schools to have been awarded triple accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS).
Our London home is the beating heart of an international community spanning 160 countries. Its proximity to the Square Mile and Tech City offers unrivalled access to the best of global business intelligence and innovation. Our students benefit from our strong connections with numerous City firms, moving into positions in those companies every year.
There is a real-world focus at the Business School. We don’t just teach you the theories, but show you how you can use the specialist knowledge you gain in your future career. Our faculties maintain close links to industry and in fact, many of our academic staff have worked, or still work, in their specialist sectors.
Industry bodies accredit many of our courses, offering you a quick route into professional qualifications. Wider recognition of our teaching excellence helps you stand out in a competitive employment market – for example, our MSc in Management and MSc in Finance are both highly ranked by the Financial Times.
We offer over 20 master’s courses that are popular with students fresh from undergraduate study and with those already in work who want to develop their specialist knowledge. Whatever your background, we help you understand your subject from a deep academic perspective. We also make sure you know how to apply the advanced practical tools and key soft skills.
