About Business Management in the Creative Industries at Faculty of Business and Law, De Montfort University

The creative industries are made up of businesses and entrepreneurs that have creativity and content that is protected by copyright as a central part of their business model. The creative industries include sectors such as design, film and TV, publishing, the performing arts, music, advertising and gaming.

Creative workers and leaders exhibit different skills and approaches to other business sectors, and individuals with creative talent require business management skills to develop as professionals in the creative industries. The Business Management in the Creative Industries MSc is uniquely positioned to help students learn how to respond to these evolving challenges.

This is a business management degree customised for the creative industries. Students are supported in developing their professional potential, whilst gaining valuable industry contacts, executive work placements, and the professional skill sets required to excel in the creative industries.

The programme benefits from the location of being a short walk away from Leicester's Cultural Quarter, and from close working relationships with creative organisations. Local creative workers and companies co-teach on the programme and offer creative industry mentoring and executive placements to boost your employability in the field.

Based at De Montfort University, there are opportunities to develop wider technical skills through access to specialist areas in the Faculty of Art, Design and Humanities and the Institute of Creative Technologies. There are also ways for you to tailor your university experience to your interests such as opportunities to get involved with our #DMUglobal international experience programmes and the university's volunteering programmes.
