Overview

The UK has the largest creative sector in Europe, and government and business increasingly recognise its importance in generating jobs, wealth and public engagement. It is therefore critical to understand the key particularities and principles in managing the skill and talent that power sectors such as advertising, architecture, art and crafts, design, film and video, music, theatre and the performing arts, publishing, TV and radio, and computing and digital design.

We will consider the theoretical foundations of management within the creative industries, but we will also look at real-life applications of this theory, the realities of contemporary professional practice, and how you can create business value through strategic management, innovation and design. This combination of practical insight and analysis of real-world issues will enhance your career development and equip you for a range of management roles.

The  Creative Industries  programme at  Birkbeck, University of London  uniquely shares expertise, knowledge, ideas and research across two renowned centres of academic excellence: our School of Business, Economics and Informatics and our School of Arts. You can choose option modules in business, management, marketing and the knowledge economy, as well as in arts management, policy and planning, and digital cultures.

Graduates go in to careers in the creative industries and media businesses. Possible professions include arts administrator, multimedia specialist, or advertising account executive.
