About Symposium 2017
On behalf of the Cass MBA Programme it is a huge pleasure to welcome you all to our third London Symposium. This year is our largest ever Symposium – and boosted further in numbers by our MBA guests from LUISS Business School (Rome), Mannheim Business School in Germany and GIBS Business School from the University of Pretoria in South Africa. We are of course also delighted to welcome Cass alumni back to Cass to join us.
Key features of our global city include its drive, its openness and its appetite for innovation. This is why we have chosen Explorers as the overall theme for our third Cass MBA London Symposium. You will hear from thought leaders and inspiring individuals as they share their insights on contemporary business practice, leading change and the value of being open to risk taking and adventure. Our Symposium is not a conference it is designed as a dynamic and engaging MBA class consisting of plenary speakers, hosted business briefings, masterclasses and social events. You too are Explorers on you own unique expedition across the capital to develop new knowledge, insight and networks.
Welcome to the London Symposium and please, be curious.
