Is it a good school to do an undergraduate degree at. For example accounting and finance, economics or management. I want a good stable job with a good income in the future.

Cass is good enough / has good enough rep within the City of London to get you that. It's not elite, but is the next tier below.

What are examples of elite universities ? Does somewhere like Nottingham or bath count as elite or in the same tier as city ?

I would say that Cass ranks slightly higher than Nottingham or Bath for finance-type degrees because Cass literally exists to focus on those types of subjects (Accountancy, Finance, Insurance). For any other subject, Bath and Nottingham are superior to City university.

My advice as someone who has graduated and succesfully gone through recruitment processes and met lots of other graduates - is not to worry too much about the specific uni, instead look at the specifics of the course and opportunities the uni offers outside of just academics. In my own personal rankings, the best unis aside from Oxbridge are Warwick and Imperial. The LSE is excellent for career prospects, but the teaching and learning experience there is poor from what my friends have told me.

Durham, Manchester, UCL....the list goes on of other really good unis which aren't the "elite" but still class - which is why employers have to look beyond the uni and look at you as an individual! For certain degrees, Cass is up there with these unis, below Oxbridge, Warwick, Imperial, but on par with Manchester / Bristol / Exeter etc.

Graduate outcomes for Cass are not good. Consult the employment stats. Would not recommend.

Cass A&F needs AAA

For those grades, you should go UCL/LSE/King's/Bath/Bristol/Manchester/Edinburgh.... and the list goes on

That's *******s. Their MSc FInance course has a 20% unemployment rate after 6 months by their own metrics in their employment report. If you are paying so much money then go to somewhere like Imperial instead. Cass is not worth it. Take away people getting jobs through family connections then the final figures are poor. 40% of people in their MSc Finance employment report got jobs through "personal contacts". Daddy got them a job.

Might seem harsh, but it's true.

I’m convinced you must have had your feelings hurt by cass because just about every post about the school you just **** on it with some cynical rubbish. Don’t listen to this guy, OP.

My feelings have not been hurt by anyone. Would you care to address any of the points I made? You come across like a defensive current or past student of Cass.

Some people are putting out deliberately misleading information about Cass. I am entitled to respond and correct them. If you want pretend that Cass is in the same class as LSE, Imperial then you are welcome to pretend. Doesn't make it true though.

I have provided information from their own figures. This is a discussion forum. We are allowed to critically discuss the employment prospects, reputation and quality of universities. If you can't handle it then jog on. I am not going to post propaganda about a school to cater to a sensitive person like you.

Cass is a middling B school with a massively inflated ranking in the FT and elsewhere. The graduate prospects are not great and you can analyse their own employment figures that they release for proof of this,

Apply to Warwick, LSE, Imperial and so on. Cass is not in the same class.
