Course summary

Take your journalism and media experience to the next level unravelling the distinct management challenges of the media industry.

The UK’s creative industries contribute almost £85 billion per year to the economy and major global economies, such as China and India, are beginning to prioritise the growth of creative industries within their own countries.

This creates a demand for effective media managers with enhanced skills and capabilities to respond to the evolving needs of today’s creative industries.

Our challenge-led modules, based on cross-functional and action-based scenarios typically found in the workplace, will equip you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to be an inspiring leader within the ever-growing creative industries sector.

The business of changing the media is ours. Together we can make a difference.

Delivered in collaboration with the School of Journalism, Media and Culture, the Cardiff MBA with Media combines the core ingredients of our flagship MBA with the opportunity to understand the distinct management challenges of the media industry.

Our academic and practitioner experts will show you how to develop and manage digital media products alongside like-minded, experienced professionals. You’ll demonstrate this learning through collaboration in a series of live settings that will introduce you to new ways of thinking about, and working with, specific audiences.

Underpinned by their up-to-the-minute research and informed by real world, practical illustrations and experiences, you’ll gain a solid foundation of business, management and media knowledge and insight to help you secure senior positions in media organisations around the world.
