Overview

Today's television and media businesses reside within one of the most competitive, complex and fastest growing industries in the world. This has created new opportunities for those who can creatively manage growing business challenges and who can develop innovative strategies to address rapidly evolving technological and consumer trends. Drexel University’s Paul F. Harron graduate program in Television and Media Management offers two graduate study options to prepare students for demanding and fulfilling careers in television and media: the Master of Science in Television & Media Management and dual MS/MBA.

We believe people learn by doing. Students in the Television & Media Management program receive hands-on management experience through internships at networks, media marketing and advertising firms, Internet start-ups, independent production companies and a range of video program distributors (broadcast television stations, cable and telco companies, and evolving direct-to-consumer media hybrids) that operate in the region and beyond.

Two Graduate Studies Options for Television & Media Management

The stand-alone MS degree offers a solid grounding in business management and specialized courses in the management of the broader television and media industry. The dual MS/MBA option, offered jointly with the LeBow College of Business, allows students to integrate more business course content with the management practices of television and media, and provides graduates the advantages of also earning the renowned Drexel MBA.
