About this program

Creative Industries Business Management

The lecture series for this course will follow two interdependent, integrated streams. One will develop students’ historical, theoretical and critical awareness of the relationship between arts, cultural entrepreneurship, and business management from a variety of viewpoints – film, music, dance, theatre, festival, gallery, etc. The other series will be more professionally focused exploring the changing environment with respect to business methods (finance, planning, and the law), and marketing and branding strategies within the creative industries.

The practical seminars and workshops for the course will focus on important case studies to highlight different business models within the creative industries from SMEs to national organisations as well as allowing an opportunity to explore important, innovative approaches to marketing and communications strategies within the sector.

The programme will increasingly introduce professionalised; work placement elements from the second part of Level I. So that by the programme’s end, students will have gathered experience of working with external professional creative industries organisations.

Program content

Year One

Your first year will give you a detailed overview of how the creative industries are structured from organisational, financial, and policy aspects, together with some introductory insights into the creative objectives and practices of our key industrial focuses music, film and TV, the stage, and the worlds of games and interactive media.

Year Two

You'll work on advanced business skills relating to the creative industries: the projection of creative leadership, the management of creativity, the financing of innovative creative work, the policy and industrial contexts in which creativity develops and finds its opportunities, the workflows and technologies that allow creative work to achieve its ambitions.

You'll have the opportunity to allow you to explore your own commercial, cultural and creative enthusiasms.

Year Three

You’ll explore brands, marketing, and contemporary convergent promotion and development strategies. You'll develop your collaboration skills, essential for the creative industries and you'll be provided with opportunities to apply your entrepreneurial and creative expertise to your work.

You’ll specialise in the development of an individual project. You can tailor this project to your own interests, such as writing a business portfolio, developing a screen, stage, music, interactive project, or completing a dissertation. There will be essential sessions on how to design and develop your research.

Program delivery

The course will be structured around lectures, practical seminars and workshops, and tutorials. There is the expectation of independent study for appropriate research.

Throughout your three years of study, you will have a number of assessments. Exams are normally held at the end of each academic year and you are required to complete a series of assessment tasks during each year. These typically include business reports, essays, and a portfolio. In your final year, you are also required to complete a research project/dissertation.

In addition to this, you are given opportunities for formative feedback on assessments, with opportunities to improve before your final submission.

You will be given feedback on your assessments, and you will have the opportunity to discuss this with your tutor in more detail.


  • The tuition fees for the 2022/23 academic year are £9,250 for full-time undergraduate courses.
  • If you are a student from the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands, your tuition fees will also be £9,250.
  • The International Tuition fees for 2022/23 are £12,500.

Career paths

We will equip you to develop a career in a range of creative production areas: music, stage, fine art, graphic design, festivals, public events, and more. You will learn a number of key skills, such as techniques for managing large-scale projects, budgeting and fundraising, distribution and marketing strategies, and negotiation methods and you'll acquire knowledge of legal and regulatory issues relating to the creative industries.

You'll learn this while exploring your own potential as an entrepreneur, to not only run but initiate new creative work, and find the next business opportunity in still untapped areas of digital media. 

We expect graduates of this degree to become the creative entrepreneurs of the future, contributing to Britain’s world-leading reputation for delivering high-quality arts and entertainment.
