Executive MBA

The Cass Executive MBA is a challenging 24-month journey combining intensive learning and practical application that will sharpen your performance and give you the clarity to design the next decisive phase of your career.

Studying weekday evenings or weekends for an internationally recognised qualification while continuing to work is a challenge, but also an opportunity to apply your new skills to the challenges of modern business.

You will be within an environment defined by a diverse, experienced cohort, an international faculty and a worldwide alumni network. Before you even begin, we facilitate the building of relationships with future colleagues and the planning of your professional development. As you progress, your International Consultancy Week and choice of International Elective will noticeably enhance your knowledge of global business practices.

Entry requirements

  • A minimum of five years' relevant and appropriate full-time work experience, gained after graduation.
  • A good university degree (upper second class honours degree (2:1) or above) or appropriate professional qualification, or at least six years' relevant business experience.
  • Personal statement and supporting questions. Please note we have specific questions which are available in the online application.
  • If English is not your first language you will require a minimum, well-balanced IELTS score of 7.0. This may be waived if you have worked or studied in an English-speaking country for at least a year.
  • Two supporting references from suitable sources. They can either be from your employer, a client who knows you in a business capacity, or from your current/ previous employer. Although your referees will receive an electronic request, it is our experience that referees respond more quickly if the candidate also sends the link to the online reference form directly to them.
