Why study the MBA: Media Management?

This award aims to develop learners’ potential for progression to a management role with a master’s level understanding of the importance of managing media in business. It is this understanding of how to manage the ever increasing choice of media that is essential to the development of business in the 21st Century. As globalisation increases and markets grow, the ability to identify which media vehicle is required to maximise a company’s message is crucial.

The specific Media modules that help create this discrete strand recognise the need for familiarity and intellectual engagement with new digital developments within the media industries whereby producers and consumers actively participate and interact with one another in a rapidly changing media landscape. Added to which, the global dimensions of the digital age require us to understand the possibilities and politics of mediated products and services that operate with both a local and global reach. These approaches will be embedded within practical experiences which encourage you as students to work as teams, developing and disseminating media products and services, allowing you to understand intellectual engagement through experiential involvement.


What qualifications do I need to apply?

Candidates for entry to the MBA programme must normally possess:

          I.    UK/EU students will be able to enter the programme directly in accordance with University entry requirements for MA programmes (a first degree achieved at Class 2:2 or above from an approved University or Institution) or possess an equivalent qualification.

         II.    In addition to the qualifications above, non-UK/EU students whose first language is not English will be required to achieve IELTS 6 or above with no less than Band 6 in writing skills, or equivalents accepted by the University.



Where applicants do not meet the stated entry requirements above, the University APEL policy may be utilised for entry to the programme where necessary and appropriate. The programme may use this system to allow entry for post-experience professional who are over 21 years and who have been in management for at least 2 years. This is likely to involve a submission of evidence of professional competence (an assignment to the Head of Programme) and an interview as part of the recruitment process.
