Course Summary

Combine critical understanding of the cultural industries with the development of key business skills.

Overview

Cultural industries play a vital role in modern societies. Bringing together perspectives from media and cultural studies with business studies, this programme combines critical understanding of the cultural industries with the development of key business skills.

Modules examine the structures, organisation and operations of the cultural industries together with cultural policy frameworks and the unique professional roles and practices characterising cultural work. These studies are conducted in conjunction with modules concentrating on entrepreneurial creativity, launching new ventures and leading entrepreneurial growth. By advancing this range of knowledge and skills, the programme addresses the conditions, working practices, and challenges that define cultural industries and shape the work of cultural practitioners.

The course aims to:

  • provide you with a critical understanding of the characteristics, structures and operating dynamics of the cultural industries
  • provide you with the skills to explore various models for the development of cultural and creative enterprises
  • understand the importance of the cultural industries in modern societies
  • help you develop an ability to carry out financial analysis of a cultural enterprise
  • allow you to become fluent in the financial, marketing and managerial aspects of the cultural industries
  • provide knowledge of leading scholarship in the study of cultural industries
  • enable you to appreciate the interrelationships that exist between fundamental research and its practical application
  • acquire the critical, analytical, technological and business background to enable students to make a significant contribution to the cultural and creative sector of the economy

Modules

Entrepreneurial activity can only succeed if supported by appropriate resources that are then managed to promote economic activity. It is often the case that entrepreneurs have insufficient personal funds to develop a business without resort to external providers of finance. This module will explore the major themes within accounting and finance that are relevant to entrepreneurs. The first part of the module examines internal accounting procedures and accountability to external stakeholders. The second part examines how entrepreneurs finance their venture and the different sources of funds involved at different stages of development.
