About

In the Entrepreneurship and Management in the Creative Industries (Business Administration) programme of the University of Amsterdam, you learn state-of-the-art theories rooted in different business disciplines, such as strategic marketing, management, entrepreneurship and digital innovation.

Overview

Be ahead of the competition

While almost everyone has their favourites when it comes to, for instance, movies, music, or books, some of these creative products are far more successful than others. Why? Especially when you consider that in many cases, the differences in underlying product attributes are minimal.

This leads to questions, such as:

  • How, and by whom, is the economic value of creative goods decided?
  • How should we understand the phenomenon of superstars versus celebrities? 
  • Is the industry becoming more liberal and diverse, or will it be dominated by algorithms developed by high-tech businesses like Netflix and Spotify?
  • In this track, you learn theory and study practice of international competition in industries like music, fashion, and the arts. You critically analyse the dynamic processes that drive success (or failure) by addressing tensions that are common in these industries: art versus commerce, creativity versus management, craft versus technology and individual inspiration versus creative systems.
