The Central Saint Martins Birkbeck offered at University of the Arts London (UAL) 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 Central Saint Martins Birkbeck Master of Business Administration takes a unique and radical approach, placing ethics, creative thinking and social engagement at the heart of modern business education.
This course develops future leaders with compassion, resilience and the ability to adapt to an increasingly complex world.
Students benefit from the combined strengths of two specialist institutions in central London, as well as their expansive and supportive international networks.
Combining rigorous academic standards and the core elements of a traditional MBA with applied projects for innovative organisations, our students advance their critical thinking, emotional intelligence, decision making and creative cognitive flexibility.
The course aims to prepare graduates for the next step in their careers, whether it be a transformational senior management role within their current industry, or a new role in a completely new field of work. Entrepreneurial students are encouraged to set up their own businesses.
The emphasis on positive transformation, and a socially-motivated desire to change the world, coupled with a solid understanding of business and management will create graduates who are keen to bring about fundamental innovation and systemic change.
With this MBA, students will be able to transfer their skills within their current industry, or across industries. With developed managerial competences and innovation practice, graduates will be able to seek employment or further their career opportunities in positions that apply design thinking to complex problems, and take a holistic view of business issues. With developed leadership capacities, they will be able to combine ‘thinking’ and ‘doing’ with robust knowledge and application in organisations.
