In this episode I am speaking with Tony Whiteman-Reynolds from City University’s Cass Business School in London.
Tony is an MBA Recruitment Manager, part of the Admissions team, and responsible for recruiting high calibre students for the school’s programs. A customer service specialist, he previously managed Cass’s Full-time MBA, streamlining processes for the flagship London program, resulting in an improved experience for Academics and postgraduate students at the school.
This episode is interesting for prospective applicants, interested in a top-5 London MBA (ranking by FT), featuring a compact, international and intimate program.
