About Master of Digital Media, MDM - at Centre for Digital Media

About the Master of Digital Media Program

The Master of Digital Media program is a professional graduate degree in Vancouver, Canada. Guided by top-level faculty and industry mentors, students learn management and collaboration skills, working in teams on industry-supported projects. Students graduate with the skills to work in the top jobs in digital media as producers, designers, managers, technical artists and entrepreneurs.

The MDM program was created through a unique partnership of four leading academic institutions - University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, Emily Carr University of Art + Design and British Columbia Institute of Technology - and leaders from the digital media industry. Through this partnership, a curriculum was developed that corresponds to industry needs and prepares students for high-level roles in new and expanding digital media markets.

Team-based project learning is the core of the MDM curriculum. Following intensive course work in the first semester, students work in cross-disciplinary teams on semester-length industry projects. Students also complete a 4-8 month internship. Through this, students gain valuable management, technical and design experience specific to the digital media industry.

The Master of Digital Media program was created by the industry for the industry. Our first industry partners recognized a growing need for savvy, creative innovators and entrepreneurs who could lead the booming new media sector. This founding partnership has grown into a broad network of businesses and organizations that work with the Centre and MDM students, including some of the world's leading companies such as Electronic Arts, Mozilla, Autodesk and Microsoft.
