Coca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent Visits for Lunch

Cass Business School News.


The Langham Hotel was the swanky destination for a lunch with the CEO and Chairman of the Coca-Cola Company Muhtar Kent (MBA Administrative Sciences, 1977) with the winners of the Defne and Muhtar Kent Prize in Entrepreneurship and the Coca-Cola Foundation scholars. Muhtar personally congratulated all scholars and presented them with a gift from Coca-Cola. Muhtar spoke very warmly about his time at then City University Business School and praised Cass for its achievements to date.

Prizes were awarded to Barbara Lisa (Executive MBA, 2014) and Daniel Riddett (Executive MBA, 2013) on behalf of the Defne and Muhtar Kent Educational Foundation, whilst Coca-Cola scholars Kajal Kanbi (BSc Investment, Insurance and Real Estate, 2017), Sameer Syed Alam (MA Publishing, 2012), Lynn Yu (BSc Actuarial Science, 2016) and William Johnson (BSc Banking and International Finance, 2016) were also there, and some took their chance to take a selfie with Muhtar Kent himself.
