Course summary

ABOUT THE COURSE

Think you’ve got what it takes to succeed as a creative entrepreneur? Based in Solent University’s own on-campus creative agency, this master’s programme is ideally suited to savvy graduates who are looking to make their mark in the creative industries. If you have ever thought about setting up your own creative enterprise or working as a freelancer, this intensive course will help you develop the essential skills required to succeed.

The tutoring team on Solent University’s MA Creative Enterprise programme believe that the best way to learn freelance and enterprise skills is to get involved with real commercial projects.

Our established industry links and on-site creative agency provide students with access to these projects, where they will be expected to take full responsibility for managing the client, communicating successfully and delivering projects to budget. Past students have even had the opportunity to pitch for paid work as part of the course.

Taught portions of the course closely examine the creative economy, helping students to understand how the different sectors of the creative industry operate. Students also learn a range of strategic thinking and problem solving skills, building a set of transferable skills which will help them throughout their career.

Students will join Solent Creatives, our on-campus creative agency, for the duration of the master’s programme. Students learn enterprise skills by working with real clients on a variety of live projects, meeting professional deadlines and taking full responsibility for client management.

What does this course lead to?

This course equips students to identify opportunities that are appropriate to their skillset and aspirations, helping them to take their existing creative skills and apply them in a commercial setting. This may take the form of in-house employment, freelance work, entrepreneurship - or a combination of the three.

The enterprise skills that students develop can be used throughout their careers and will help to maximise their employability. This includes a thorough understanding of how business is conducted within the creative industries and a toolkit of general business and enterprise skills.

Who is this course for?

This course is a must for entrepreneurial graduates or ambitious professionals who are keen to start their own creative enterprise or work as a freelancer in the creative industries.
