MA in Creative and Media Enterprises

Duration: 1 year full-time, 2 years part-time

Whether you’re a recent arts graduate, a budding entrepreneur or a seasoned media professional, this course will help you to tackle the real challenges of running a small creative business. Focusing on the special relationship between creativity, strategic management and cultural entrepreneurship, this was the first programme in the UK to examine the business of creativity.

You’ll study core modules in Creativity and Organisation, and Managing Intellectual Property. You can also choose from optional modules on topics such as cultural entrepreneurship, brands and meaning, audiences and marketing. We encourage you to discover a creative approach to management and a managed approach to creativity, which can then be applied to a range of scenarios and industries.

This course will equip you with the strategic and conceptual thinking skills required to work across
the range of creative and media sectors. Recent graduates have gone on to work in a variety of roles in areas such as TV, advertising, research, marketing, rights management and self-seeded start-up companies.
