Imperial vs CASS

Hi,

Curious to know the Global rep of Imperial vs CASS EMBAs. Which one has a better alumni network, course structure, prestige, global impact, etc.

Thanks

You're specifically thinking of the part-time EMBA? Cass certainly has a much older and stronger reputation for its EMBA; its City location means that it has a great cohort there.

That said, Cass's alumni base isn't well distributed, and is mainly in the UK and US (and now in the UAE). The Imperial College Business School's network is not so strong, but it's able to leverage the college's network, which is more widespread (especially in the British Commonwealth countries).

In terms of course content, you can compare them yourself. The Imperial programme seems to involve less time in the classroom.

Hello Duncan. Thanks for taking the time to reply. Yes, I am specifically looking at the part-time EMBA option. Viscerally Imperial seems more up my street due to its emphasis on Innovation & Entrepreneurship, but CASS is higher in the EMBA rankings and has an older presence. Which in your opinion/experience has a wider global appeal? Thanks again.

Well, the Imperial programme looks like eight or nine modules of three days in the first year covering the core cores, plus 25 days (for electives plus a study tour) in the second year. That's less than half the classroom time of the EMBAs at Cass or LBS. I just can't see how, for example, they can hope to teach finance or organisational behaviour well in 21 hours.

No, honestly, looking at the programmes I can't see a basis for taking Imperial over Cass.

Certainly they are both strong schools, but the Cass students are more senior, both on the way in and the way out of the programme, and have better work experience.
