InBusinesswas a research magazine that showcased the latest Cass research and the ways in which it influences the business world. As Cass is an international business school, the articles bring a global perspective to important research across Cass's three faculties: Finance, Actuarial Science and Insurance, and Management. The stories were written by high-profile business and finance journalists. The content is digestible and interesting. The InBusiness magazine is no longer published, although articles from back-issues can still be accessed on the Cass Knowledge website.

Video & Podcast
Our academics introduce and explain a number of their research findings and discuss models and arguments found in their research papers in these recorded videos. In addition, they frequently give their up-to-the-minute views on current business and finance news on our weekly Cass Talks series. Cass Talks are an essential addition to the mainstream business media and should not be missed by anyone interested in the 'how and why' of what's happening in the world.
