Cass Business School is one of Europe’s leading providers of business and management education, applying the latest management and financial thinking


Based in London, Cass is at the heart of business both in the City and on the global stage. Both its London and Dubai programmes provide unrivalled access to the world’s leading firms and individuals. 

Business and business practitioners not only benefit from Cass’s thought-leading business education programmes, but also contribute to them through a wide variety of advisory groups, lectures and workshops.

Cass Business School’s top-ranked Executive MBA is now delivered in Dubai. Its two-year Executive MBA is ranked second in the UK and 21st in the world by the Financial times.

Now, in collaboration with Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC), Cass is offering access to the very latest business-tested thinking to the Gulf, the Middle East and surrounding regions.

Aimed at senior business professionals who want to accelerate their career, while remaining in full-time employment, Cass Business School’s Executive MBA programme is designed to fit around most busy working schedules and is therefore structured over one long weekend a month over two years.

You can choose to study Cass’s general Executive MBA in Finance & Management, or have the opportunity to specialise in either Islamic finance or energy. The Islamic finance stream is the first of its kind to be offered by a top-ranked business school.
