Careers and Professional Development
Welcome to The Business School (formerly Cass)
On behalf of the Career and Professional Development Team, I am delighted to welcome you to your MBA programme; which is designed to support you with your career objectives. We take a practical approach at the business school; empowering you in your career progression and professional development, by providing you with expert training, guidance and skills development that are tailored to your needs and develop the interpersonal skills that employers demand. Your Professional Development Workshops form part of your Continuous Professional Development module on the MBA.
When you start your MBA, the MBA Careers team will be there to guide you through the curriculum of professional development workshops, our coaching offering and the range of globally-leading careers resources that you can access as a student. You will also have access to Cass Careers Online (CCO) when you join, our Career Management System.
In order to prepare you for successful career development, which may involve anything from enhancing your leadership communication skills, changing industry or starting your own business, we have developed a short online course within our virtual learning environment. You will receive access to this module before your course commences and it will prepare you for your career management journey whilst at the school.
In the meantime, we look forward to working with you in preparing your career strategy, so that you are in the best position to pursue future success.
