The city’s high-level, high-stakes media environment also means more competition—especially when it comes to moving into leadership positions in media companies. Those jobs demand more than mere knowledge of digital, social, and traditional media. They also require a background in business, which is what inspired the Gabelli School to develop its Master of Science in Media Management (MSMM) program.
The MS in Media Management at Fordham University prepares students for careers in both traditional and new media industries, emphasizing innovation, leadership, public relations, marketing, brand strategy, entrepreneurship, social media, and product development.
With our campus in the heart of Manhattan, and courses taught by leading media executives, you’ll find yourself interacting with industry leaders on a daily basis. As any Gabelli School graduate will tell you, those connections are the key to getting a job in this competitive, relationship-oriented field.
The MSMM provides a core of substantive graduate-level business administration courses that incorporate the common body of knowledge required by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, of which Fordham is an accredited member.
