The course is based on an MBA style curriculum and is academically rigorous without neglecting the applied, practical aspects of management education. Students come from a variety of backgrounds to experience the unique Cass environment of learning, teamwork and collaboration.
The course equips you with both the foundations of business management and the most advanced tools and theories. These often come directly from the research carried out by Cass's world renowned faculty.
In 2013/14 the course features students from over 32 different countries from four continents. Course content reflects this international mobility, equipping students with the skills necessary to perform in the global business community.
The course commences in September with a Foundations of Management workshop which prepares students with some of the concepts necessary to complete the course, and includes careers and professional skills development workshops.
To satisfy the requirements of the degree course students must complete:
• eight core courses (15 credits each) and • A Business Research Project (40 credits) and • Three electives (10 credits each)
