Welcome to Bayes Business School

I am delighted to welcome you to Bayes Business School.

We are a leading global business school that provides inspiring education and conducts cutting-edge research to create communities of inquisitive and thoughtful practitioners who can positively influence business and the professions and, ultimately, benefit society.  We are always curious, always bold and always learning.

Paolo Volpin As many of you will know, we took the decision to remove the Cass name from our School last year, undertaking a comprehensive consultation process to find a new name which was reflective of our values.

At Bayes we pride ourselves on a culture of inclusivity within our global community. In June 2020, there was increasing awareness of the links between Sir John Cass and the slave trade, which made us, and our stakeholders, reflect on whether such a link was consistent with our values. We have now changed our name, and decided that, in line with our values and principles, we need to increase our focus on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). You can read more about our DEI work here.

Inspired by Thomas Bayes' ideas, our approach as Bayes Business School is to have the courage to do things differently. As a community, we nurture diversity to stimulate new perspectives and learn from each other. On education, we focus on teaching our students how to think rather than what to think. In our research, we explore imaginative new angles, asking difficult questions to produce research that has real impact on business, society and the environment.

We have produced generations of business leaders, provided new insights into the way business and markets work, and transformed business practice. We are consistently ranked among the leading business schools in the world, which is testament to the excellence of our faculty and the quality and enterprise of our students.

I feel great optimism about the future and I am pleased to welcome you to our School.
