Masters of Business Administration (MBA)

What happens when you mix an arts school with a business school? The Central Saint Martins Birkbeck MBA is a different kind of MBA that places creative approaches and social engagement at the heart of future management and leadership. The programme challenges the orthodox business school approach to education, and instead focuses on cross-disciplinary collaboration. You will become a new type of business graduate: one who can combine genuinely creative thinking and innovation with core financial and strategic management skills. The aim of the programme is to develop professional networks and to work collaboratively to make positive change happen. We will devise projects and offer live opportunities with external partners to do this.

Course modules

You take four modules: Provocation and Enquiry (60 credits at Level 7); Entrepreneurship in Action (20 credits at Level 7); Effecting Change: Collaboration in Practice (40 credits at Level 7); Live Project or Dissertation (individual) (60 credits at Level 7).

Assessment methods

Seminars taught by staff from both Birkbeck and Central Saint Martin's, with small-group work. Presentations (both individual and group), a group project, individual report, case study, case analysis, multiple choice test, essays, reflective writing, and either a live practical project or a dissertation.
