In europe its ranked 6th according to the Financial Times

It is a new £60m business school, and at undergraduate level you need AAB to get in.

It specialises on investment and finance, of which its finance department ir rated as one of the best in europe.

It has extremely close links with all the investment banks

3 current prime ministers have lectured there in the last 2 years, also the chairman of the BoE, easyjet ex-chairman (stellios), the queen, gordon brown, jack straw and sir terry leahy (tescos CEO)

the undergrads come out starting on about £30-40k a year, depending on which course.

No.. Oxford is better for some Management/Finance courses and so are a few others... but Cass vs MBS.. it's Cass hands down.

If you look at some of the business school rankings, you'd find that Manchester is quite a bit higher up than Cass. MBS is very strong for postgrad that's for sure.

Manchester has a very strong business school especially for postgraduate studies. I dunno too much about how reputable CASS with employers for their MSc courses but you can't go wrong with Manchester.

As far as recruitment in the city is concerned, I think it is a consensus that Cass is better.

The whole point of saying THINk and CONSENSUS is that I need not back this up with proof. Also, from my friends who work in the city, some have mentioned Cass rather highly, and never really them talking about MBS.

EDIT: really heard*

The university of manchester is the university that has channelled most of it' energies in having an excellent reputation with employers. After the merger with manchester & umist the goal was to make manchester one of the best universities in the UK and increase it's global rep. I know manchester has an extremely strong reputation with employers with its business school as my cousin graduated from their and found it fairly easy to get a job with the help of the university.

I would say manchester is far superior to cass in terms of employers. Manchester has one of the best reps with employers in most of their degrees. You can find info to back this up on google.

Actually, the point of citing 'consensus' is that you adduce a consensus; 'non-existent consensus' politics (i.e. dictatorship) never really took off for that very reason.

There is a consensus on this board, and a consensus amongst my friends in the city as I said above. Those are my only grounds to say what I've just said. I'm not saying I'm right. It's a personal opinion. There might not even be a consensus on this board, although, I think there is one.
