Program description

This programme is intended for students who did not pursue a production-based specialisation at the undergraduate level, and while they may have studied filmmaking or had previous work-related experience in the topics, this is neither an expectation nor a prerequisite. While always changing and evolving due to the arrival of digital technologies, the film and entertainment industries are the up and coming areas of a society that is rapidly moving towards a work-less, create-and-enjoy-more civilization.

The curriculum stresses practise (based on theory), which is supported by live business projects and engages students through practice-based assessment assignments - at graduation, students should be fully functional in the industry's financing, marketing, and distribution domains.

The MBA Film Production degree is a postgraduate programme of study that can be completed in one year (full-time) or part-time over two to three years. The degree includes a taught component that prepares students for an extended dissertation or film industry project.
