Supporting executives into business school teaching

Cass to participate in The Bridge Programme that equips business executives with the skills and training to teach in business schools

The Bridge Programme equips business executives with the skills and training to teach and work in leading business schools throughout the world.

The programme is tailored to support corporate leaders and business executives make a successful transition into business school teaching.

Those who can… teach

In response to demand from UK business schools for more business leaders to teach on their programmes, the Chartered Association of Business Schools has collaborated with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) to provide a clear path to move from the world of business to the classroom.

The programme draws on the expertise of a wide variety of visiting speakers, including professional educators, academics who themselves have crossed the bridge from business, as well as, experts in specific key aspects of teaching.

Participants who complete the programme will join an alumni of senior executives from Ernst & Young, BP, Coca-Cola and other companies, who now teach the next generation of business leaders throughout the world.


Speakers from City, University of London include:

  • Marianne Lewis, Dean of Cass Business School and Professor of Management
  • Dr Aneesh Banerjee, Lecturer in Management, Cass business School
  • Professor Pam Parker, Deputy Director, Learning Enhancement and Development, City, University of London
  • Angela Dove, Learning Development Associate and Visiting Lecturer, Cass Business School
  • Alison Sands, Academic Quality and Standards Manager, Cass Business School

The 2015 Bridge Programme was very highly rated by participants for its relevance, practicality and preparing for the reality of both business school and student expectations from high quality management education. It is an intensive and challenging programme drawing on a wide range of experts from across the UK.
