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.

The Creative Industries program 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.
