About

The MA in Global Media and Management from Keele University provides a unique insight into global media and culture from both a corporate and creative perspective.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Our practical approach means that you’ll learn about relevant theories, principles and concepts in real-world contexts and actively apply them – whether designing a communications campaign from a client brief for D&AD’s New Blood Awards or undertaking a ‘live’ consultancy or work placement project. One previous student mocked up a digital recruitment campaign for his employer, England Golf, the governing body for amateur golf, while another produced a set of online marketing videos for the World of Wedgewood visitor attraction.

You’ll benefit from our close links with a wide range of local arts and cultural organisations, such as the New Vic Theatre, which ensures content remains relevant and up-to-date. We will examine how social, political and corporate attitudes to media, entertainment and culture have changed over time and how form, content and distribution has been affected as a result.

Careers

Global Media and Management from Keele University is designed to give you an in-depth understanding of global media production, of different business and management approaches and the capacity to manage these processes effectively within the creative economies. Key transferrable skills, such as high-level communication, critical thinking and problem-solving, are embedded within the programme to maximise your career opportunities.

It will prepare you for a range of management and leadership careers across the media and cultural sector, including in economics, business strategy, media policy, intellectual property rights and marketing. You could choose to follow the communications route within a much broader range of sectors or focus on policy advisory and consultancy roles. On completion, you’ll be ideally placed to pursue further postgraduate studies at MPhil or PhD level.
