Ignition Asset Finance director Paul Caunter has joined the Leasing Foundation’s leasing and asset finance Masters (MA) course at Falmouth University as an associate lecturer.

The part-time degree will launch in September 2016, and is designed for both leasing professionals and those wishing to enter the industry from other finance and banking sectors.

Caunter, in his role as associate lecturer, will assist in the development of the MA course, and providing advice and support to students.

"It is very positive to see Falmouth University offering a practical and business-focused course in leasing and asset finance," said Caunter, "I’m delighted to be involved."

Caunter will also help develop case studies for the module in Leadership, Innovation, and Strategy, focusing on the challenges faced by companies in the leasing and asset finance industry.

The course content will be available online through Falmouth University’s Learning Space platform, and will be supported by university academics, and mentors from The Leasing Foundation.
