MBA (Proposed Course)


Central Saint Martins is developing a new kind of MBA, centred on organisational creativity and innovation to find new solutions to today’s complex global challenges. The creativity and innovation aspects of the course will be taught online and via workshops at CSM’s spectacular London building, giving students access to world-class teaching from across the creative disciplines.

Students will explore strategy, innovation and marketing as opportunity-creating, rather than problem-solving, through practical projects, business leaders and entrepreneurs and case studies. Management disciplines such as operations, finance, accounting and HR would be taught through practical exercises, workshops and a range of learning resources.

Inspired by a design-school approach to teaching and learning, the emphasis of the CSM MBA is to help self-directed learners put new skills and knowledge into practice as effective managers in the current paradigm, with the capacity to combine analysis, creativity and ethical values to invent the next one. 

We’re testing the CSM MBA proposition through online research, and engaging in dialogue with a range of commercial and not-for-profit organisations. This co-design and feedback is directly shaping the course structure, content and approach to learning.
