Delivered jointly by the School of Humanities and Keele Business School, the MA in Global Media and Management will equip you with specialist skills in media production and media management. You will develop high-level communication, problem-solving and other transferable skills that will enable you to excel in your career.

Working closely with industry partners ensures that the programme combines academic rigour with business-relevant content, equipping you with the skills and knowledge needed for a wide range of careers. After completing the programme our students have worked for top media companies such as the Kobalt Music Group, one of the world’s leading independent music publishers.

One of the key benefits of the MA in Global Media and Management from Keele University  is its flexibility. In addition to core modules in Media and Management that all students study, you will also have the opportunity to choose optional modules and focus your study in your personal areas of interest. The advantage of this is that you work with different academic staff and students, developing new perspectives and personal networks.

When you have completed the taught modules you will do a large project where you can further develop your knowledge in a specific area of media production, management consultancy or media research.


You will leave with the in-depth understanding of global media production, of different business and management approaches within the global economy and the skills needed to manage these processes. The programme is ideal for students aiming to take up management, administrative and leadership roles within the media industry (jobs such as Production Managers in Film and TV companies) or communications roles in a wide range of sectors.
