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.

Entry requirements

MBA: Central Saint Martins Birkbeck MBA applicants must have an Honours degree and usually at least three years of relevant work and/or professional experience, but we will look at exceptional candidates with less. Applicants without a first degree but with a substantial number of years' work experience will also be considered.
