Our MSc Creative Industry Management explores innovative leadership among managers of entrepreneurial organisations in the creative industries of performing and visual arts, new digital media, and design. We address creativity and leadership issues, techniques, policy development and their applications in the public sector, manufacturing and service industries. You also explore creative business management opportunities and respond to recognition, at an international level, of the economic importance of the creative industries.
We focus on the generation of leadership capabilities among managers and the need to develop creative management styles, skills, inter-organisational relationships and multi-disciplinary methods with which to manage complex, organisational environments.
