We operate a rolling admissions programme. However, due to high demand for places from strong candidates across the Cass MBA programmes, we recommend that you submit a full application at least four months in advance of the start of the course.


Tell us why you wish to pursue an MBA at Cass Business School. The admission committee will be interested in your academic background, relevant experience, career aspirations and social and intellectual pursuits. (1000 words)
