This course challenges the orthodox business school approach to education and focuses on cross-disciplinary collaboration.

You will become a new type of business graduate: one who can combine creative thinking and innovation with core financial and strategic management skills. We train future leaders with compassion, resilience and the ability to adapt to an increasingly complex world.

For this Master of Business Administration (MBA) course, Central Saint Martins has entered into a high-level collaborative partnership with Birkbeck, University of London.

The MBA recognises the crucial role of the cultural economy 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.

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.
