The Paul F. Harron Graduate Program in Television & Media Management at Drexel University offers two graduate study options: the Master of Science in Television & Media Management and dual MS/MBA. Both options are available online or on campus and prepare students for their next step in a demanding and fulfilling career in television and media management.


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. 

Students in the Television & Media Management program receive hands-on management experience through opportunities and internships at networks, media marketing and advertising firms, Internet start-ups, independent production companies and a range of video program distributors. Courses are taught by television and media management professionals who work in the field today and evolve their curriculum to ensure students are engaged with the latest industry practices and technology.

Two Graduate Studies Options for Television & Media Management

The stand-alone program in Television and Media Management at Drexel University 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.

Both the MS and MS/MBA are offered on campus and 100% online.
