50th Anniversary Year Closing Party
Hosted at the London Transport Museum, over 300 alumni plus staff and guests joined special guest Sir Stelios to party late into the night. The silent disco proved a particular highlight.
Muhtar Kent Masterclass
It’s been a great year for connecting with famous alumni, with Muhtar Kent, the Chairman and former CEO of The Coca-Cola Company coming back for a masterclass on diversity alongside his annaul prizegiving of the Defne and Muhtar Kent Prize in Entrepreneurship and the Coca-Cola Foundation scholars.

Cyber Security at KPMG
We’ve also had alumni invite us to their place of work! We visited KPMG with some Cass academics to team up with the KPMG experts for this interactive discussion on cyber security.
It’s been a lovely year for Cass couples! Thanks to those who sent us in their photos – we’d love to have more. Share with us via email@example.com or message on our social platforms.
