The Cardiff MBA with Media Overview

Take your journalism and media experience to the next level with the Cardiff MBA with Media.

Delivered in collaboration with the School of Journalism, Media and Culture, the Cardiff MBA with Media combines the core ingredients of our flagship MBA with the opportunity to understand the distinct management challenges of the media industry.

You’ll gain a solid foundation of business, management and media knowledge and insight to help you secure senior positions in media organisations around the world. You’ll benefit from teaching delivered by expert academic practitioners underpinned by up-to-the-minute theory and informed by real-world, practical illustrations and experiences.

The Cardiff MBA with Media will help you make a difference

The UK’s creative industries contribute almost £85 billion per year to the economy and major global economies, such as China and India, are beginning to prioritise the growth of creative industries within their own countries.

This creates a demand for effective media managers with enhanced skills and capabilities to respond to the evolving needs of today’s creative industries.

Our challenge-led modules, based on cross-functional and action-based scenarios typically found in the workplace, will equip you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to be an inspiring leader within the ever-growing creative industries sector.

The business of changing the media is ours. Together we can make a difference.
