ITFA / Cass Partnership

ITFA is delighted to announce that it partnered with Cass Business School – City, University of London, to teach a specialist trade finance course, that is part of the Cass MSc curriculum as an elective course.

Cass Business School is one of City, University of London’s five Schools. It is among Europe’s leading business schools and is the global elite of business schools that hold the gold standard of ‘triple-crown’ accreditation. In 2018 Cass Business School ranked 16th in the Financial Times’ European Business School Rankings (5th in the UK).

The six specialist trade finance lectures will be delivered by ITFA Board Members and by guest ITFA specialists during the month of June. The 25 registered students will then be assessed through a written group assignment, which will test their ability to put in practice the trade finance tools and techniques learnt throughout the course.

The course outline is as follows:

Lecture 1 – Thursday, 6 June 2019

Lecture 2 – Tuesday, 11 June 2019

Lecture 3 – Thursday 13 June 2019

Lecture 4 – Monday, 17 June 2019

Lecture 5 – Tuesday, 25 June 2019

Lecture 6 – Thursday 27 June 2019

ITFA is continuously looking to expand its influence as we craft the next generation of trade financiers. We have made it our commitment to attract new talent to our industry over time and increase the proportion of Young Professionals in Trade Finance, and this is now bearing fruits through a number of different initiatives spearheaded by the ITFA Young Professionals. The partnership with Cass will further reinforce this commitment as we will hopefully equip these 25 aspiring trade financiers to undertake a successful career in our industry.
