Cass Business School hosted its inaugural Alumni World Forum yesterday with events in the UAE, China, Colombia, France, Greece, Hong Kong, Italy, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Spain and USA all built around a day of lectures, seminars and masterclasses at Cass's Bunhill Row Building in London, UK.

Cass has over 30,000 in 154 countries who are active in all areas of business. The Alumni World Forum has been designed to bring together this diverse group on one day to share ideas, network and hear from world-leading business thinkers.

The Dubai alumni reception was held at the Capital Club in the Dubai International Financial Centre, where Cass Business School hold their Dubai Executive MBA programme. At the event the region's alumni came together to meet with fellow Cass students, network and make new connections.

Alumni around the world were also able to contribute during the day via social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. The London panel sessions were also streamed live via the Cass Business School website.

Theresa Dzendrowskyj, Head of Alumni Relations at Cass Business School said: "We are very lucky to have such a tremendous relationship with our alumni all over the world. Cass is a truly global business school and our aim with the Alumni World Forum was to provide a forum for our alumni to meet, share ideas, learn and have fun. Cass is truly committed to a life-long relationship with our students and this event is just one of the many events and activities we run all over the world each year."

Cass Business School Dean, Richard Gillingwater CBE says: "Cass is proud of our world class alumni across the globe and we want to continue to strengthen our ties with them. The reputation and momentum of business schools is built on the engagement and enthusiasm of alumni, and we are truly grateful for the support we receive at all levels. The Alumni World Forum has been a significant undertaking for staff and our alumni volunteers who have put together a formidable event both in London and in other regions too."
