About this program

Executive Master Media Innovation

In close cooperation with international partners, Breda University of Applied Sciences has developed the executive master in Media Innovation which provides you with in-depth knowledge of digital media processes and bridges the gap between theory and practice in media studies.

The guiding principle of this program is that successful media innovations are often not brand new, but rather, they build on existing, recognisable elements. These elements, codes, are the building blocks that can be found in any media product.

In this master, we shed light on these building blocks from different theoretical perspectives. And, once you understand the codes behind a media product, you can make new connections. This is how you arrive at new concepts that are innovative and future-oriented.

The Executive Master Media Innovation starts in February with some twenty participants enrolling every year. In the current structure, with ten sessions of 2.5 days and sufficient self-study in the period between these sessions, students can obtain a Master of Arts degree within one year.
