Why study here?

Whether you're a school leaver, career changer or pursuing a lifelong interest, our Department of Management will help you meet your personal and professional goals.

A Business Education with a Difference

We are unusual in the level of flexibility that we offer on our programmes. As part of the School of Business, Economics and Informatics and the prestigious University of London, our students benefit from a wide range of academic expertise and opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration.

You will have the opportunity to choose from an extensive portfolio of modules and to examine problems from a wide range of perspectives. This flexibility enables you to build a unique programme that suits your future professional and academic plans.

Real-World Experience

We believe that our teaching and research should have an impact beyond the classroom and we highly value practical experience. You will be taught by academics whose research is at the forefront of their discipline and who are actively engaged in policy development.

We also welcome guest lecturers who are leaders in fields such as business, economics, NGOs and public policy, ensuring our teaching is informed by the latest industry knowledge.

Alongside your studies, there are plenty of opportunities to further develop your transferable skills, such as Pioneer, Birkbeck's extra-curricular enterprise course.

Specialists in Flexible Learning

Our classes are held in the evening between 6 and 9pm, so you can work, study, or do your own thing during the day.

We understand that students may have competing demands on their time or gaps in their knowledge, so we offer specialist support in Mathematics, Study Skills and English Language to ensure you can make the most of your time studying with us.

Built-In Networks

As many of our students are combining work and study, we have a unique atmosphere created by dedicated students who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience with them.

You will have the opportunity to interact with people working in your field of interest and to meet people of all different walks of life. Many of our students say that the connections they make at Birkbeck, both professional and social, are one of the best things they take from their time here.
