This MA Digital Asset and Media Management course ,at King's College London looks at the creation, management, curation and repurposing of digital media and digital assets.


The Digital Asset and Media Management MA at King's College London is designed to prepare students for a broad range of career opportunities in a dynamic and exciting digital world that is driven by knowledge and innovation. As an MA DAMM student, you will be introduced to a fascinating array of relevant theoretical ideas as part of your core module, such as disruptive innovation theory, the attention economy, digital strategy, metadata, social media marketing, and the lifecycle of digital asset.

Because the management of digital assets has become a critical concern for organisations operating across nonprofit and for-profits sectors, this programme is playing a critical role in preparing students for DAMM and DAMM related careers.

Combining theoretical and practical components, the programme is designed to link important theoretical ideas with industry-focused case studies and practical group projects.  The MA DAMM team recently welcomed world leading DAM expert Theresa Regli to the DAMM team, a move designed to ensure that our students are industry-ready on completion of this programme.
