For this The Business Administration programme from University of the Arts London (UAL), Central Saint Martins has entered into a high-level collaborative partnership with Birkbeck, University of London. Birkbeck is ranked amongst the top universities in the world. Over 90% of academics are research-active and many are renowned experts in their fields. It offers over 200 full-time undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
The MBA recognises the crucial role that the cultural economy will play in wealth creation in the coming decades. The course aims to create a new network of practitioners and leaders. You will emerge with hybrid skills and approaches suited to the social and political challenges of a digital and data-driven world. That is, a world in which innovation and creativity are central to the development of new industries, products and services.
In 2016, the World Economic Forum consulted business leaders from major global organisations for its The Future of Jobs Report. It concluded that the ten skills and qualities an employee will need by 2020 are:
- Complex problem-solving
- Critical thinking
- People management
- Coordinating with others
- Emotional intelligence
- Judgement and decision making
- Service orientation
- Cognitive flexibility
The Central Saint Martins Birkbeck MBA embeds these in its curriculum. You will develop key management and leadership skills through a progression of assessments, activities and education sessions. You will cover expected MBA disciplines such as strategy, marketing, finance, human resources, management, operations, planning, innovation and problem-solving. You will be exposed to these throughout your studies, starting from the induction and orientation weekend. As part of this, you will be expected to negotiate, make decisions, manage and lead teams in activities and solve problems.
