Cass Business School, part of City University London, is delighted to announce a new dual degree programme with leading Italian university LUISS, based in Rome.
Two students from each Institution will have the opportunity to study on a dual degree programme which includes LUISS’s MSc in General Management and Cass’s MSc in Investment Management or Corporate Finance.
The students will graduate with both an MSc in General Management from LUISS and an MSc in Corporate Finance or Investment Management from Cass. Students will have to meet entry criteria for both programmes.
Participants will not pay any additional fees for the extra qualification.
Cass and LUISS have a longstanding relationship as Erasmus partners (since the late 1990s). An undergraduate semester abroad programme between the Institutions has also been recently set up.
Cass Deputy Dean Professor Lucio Sarno commented: “LUISS has produced some of the best finance, economics and business students in Italy for decades and has a superb alumni community comprising influential policy makers, practitioners and researchers. I am delighted to embark on this joint venture with them”.
LUISS Business and Management Deputy Dean Professor Paolo Boccardelli commented: “Cass Business School is a great partner and the efforts made to integrate the knowledge provided by the two different programs resulted in a unique combination. LUISS students will benefit from a deeper and specialised track in corporate finance and investment management directly from one of the main Institutions of the global financial sector, while Cass students will benefit from the knowledge and commitment to entrepreneurship and business management of the University of Confindustria, the Confederation of Italian Industries”.

This followed a generous donation from the Sir John Cass’s Foundation. Founded in 1748 by philanthropist Sir John Cass, the Foundation is one of London’s oldest and largest education charities.
