What will I learn?

Overview

Would you like to start your own arts business? Our MA gives you all the tools to create the creative businesses of the future – whether in publishing, theatre, games, film, television, music or digital entertainment.

It is taught by major players from across the creative industries - and comprises two days per week of tutor-led seminars; with reading, assignment work, and self-led research tasks to be conducted outside the classroom in the student’s own time. Our students not only learn from the best but have the chance to develop a network of contacts that can last a lifetime, as well as the opportunity to raise real seed funding for their second year project.

It is split between London and the NFTS campus, so students are able to benefit not only from London’s ‘global hub’ but also the School’s state-of-the-art facilities. We have strived to design the MA in order to allow students to combine it with professional work.

What you will study

Over the course of the two years, participants looking to set up or build upon their own existing business will expect to:

  • Learn the business and creative dynamics of each of the seven domains
  • Gain all the personal and professional tools needed to set up and run their own business
  • Leave with a fully worked-through business proposal or plan that has been taken to investors, partners and has been mentored by a dynamic business leader in the field

Participants already working within a business can expect to take back:

  • A 360-degree view of the creative business sectors adjacent to their own existing specialisation
  • Management, legal, accountancy and planning skills that are key to the development of any business and of their own careers
  • A fully worked-through proposal for a new venture, a new division, or a new solution to an existing project or business plan proposal in need of development
