With decades of experience preparing graduates for careers in the entertainment industry, Full Sail University has a unique perspective on the kind of skills you’re going to need to excel in the business, and we’ve applied that knowledge in crafting the curriculum for our Entertainment Business Master’s degree program.
Although the master’s degree covers a number of advanced business topics – Entertainment Business Finance, Advanced Entertainment Law, and more – your education won’t just take place in the classroom. By interacting with entertainment business and traditional business communities, you’ll build your professional network and hone your communication skills, as you learn firsthand how the industry’s leaders operate.
Through case studies and in-depth research of companies in your field of interest, you’ll gain a better understanding of what makes a successful business thrive. And throughout the course of the master’s degree program, guest speakers will share their experiences in the entertainment industry, giving you even more insight into how they’ve achieved success and overcome challenges.
Near the end of the Entertainment Business Master’s degree program, you’ll craft your Business Plan Final Project, which will serve as a representation of the skills and knowledge that you’ve built throughout your courses. This detailed proposal for your own entertainment or media company will be an invaluable tool at your disposal – one that can be used to present to potential business partners or investors as you move forward in transforming your dream into a reality.
