Course content

The Business Management in the Creative Industries MSc will provide a platform for students to enhance career prospects within the creative industries through a combination of theoretical and practical learning.

This programme is ideal for students coming from backgrounds in design, arts, media, technology design, gaming, film or other creative areas who are seeking to enhance their business skills. Students from other backgrounds who are interested in creative industries or in careers in marketing or advertising will also benefit from the course. A wide range of electives and options for the summer provide opportunities to tailor the programme to your interests.

This course will develop your theoretical and applied knowledge in areas such as entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation, strategy, finance, people management, brand design and the future influence of technological innovations.

You will study a range of management issues and develop relevant skills for operating and managing in the creative industries, which have seen significant global growth in recent years.

Students will have the opportunity to either take part in a placement or an internship as part of the Executive Company Project, or participate in an Entrepreneurship Project or Practical Live Project. All of the project options allow you to apply knowledge from the course to a real-world business environment.

There are also ways for you to tailor your university experience to your interests. You will have opportunities to get involved with a #DMUglobal experience and choose a language study option.
