About us

The Department of Management was created in 1992.  In 1997 the department moved into the Clore Management Centre, a purpose-built teaching and research facility overlooking Bloomsbury’s Torrington Square, funded by a grant from the Clore Foundation. In 2009, the department became one of four departments within the School of Business, Economics and Informatics, and has since grown significantly to become the largest department in the College, with around 1,650 students and over 50 staff members.

The Department has a wide range of undergraduate programmes including our BSc Business, BSc Accounting, and BSc Marketing programmes. At postgraduate level we offer a range of MSc programmes in areas including Management, International Business, and Marketing, in addition to more specialist programmes that align with staff research interests. We are affiliated with professional accreditation bodies including the Chartered Management Institute, ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales), ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants), and the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

The Department also has a number of collaborative programmes that are offered in partnership with a range of institutions including Central St Martins, University of the Arts London; Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE); Dongbei University of Finance and Economics (DUFE); Le Cordon Bleu; and the Shanghai University of Sport.

Academic staff in the Department research across of range of disciplines and regularly contribute to public debate and publish in leading academic journals. Our four research centres draw on the expertise of colleagues in the department and across Birkbeck to provide leading research on topics of contemporary interest to business organisations and public sector institutions.
