Study type Taught


The course enables you to develop the capability to support effective strategic outcomes and operations in businesses where creative activity is a part of their overall strategy. Media Management is an increasingly valuable and widely applicable profession as it helps businesses to optimise their innovation, new product development/management and stakeholder insights.

The course supports you with a ‘golden thread’ of business skills that run through the core media management specialist modules. Through practical application in real life scenarios, you will develop new perspectives and personal networks, leading to enhanced employability. The MA Media Management aims to develop creative, media savvy, digitally fluent strategic thinkers of tomorrow.

As a new postgraduate provision, the course provides a path for higher degree students in Media and Performing Arts as well as for students in Art and Design and Humanities who want to develop a media content focus. The course will appeal to students who have media backgrounds and those who want a media industry focus. You will work independently and will collaborate across creative and media specialisms with three core areas of focus identified in specialist modules: (1) Media Businesses, Creative and Cultural Industries; (2) Media Consumers and Audiences; (3) Future Media. The curriculum will require you to apply creative and business skills in your area of specialism, which will be underpinned by a variety of theoretical perspectives, equipping you to lead and manage media within a commercial context. By developing your skills in leadership and media management, you will have acquired the capability to work and lead strategic initiatives at the forefront of this rapidly evolving and growing sector. You will have multiple options for the delivery of creative and strategic explorations, including academic writing, academic posters, digital/traditional media outcomes, oral and visual presentations, digital portfolios and online content.

The course will capitalise on our already extensive experience of partnering with business and working closely with creative industry partners ensuring that the programme combines academic rigour with business-relevant content. This will provide potential opportunities for working with live client projects and where possible international collaborations with overseas partners.
