Creative and Cultural Industries Management

Sheffield may be one of the best places in the UK to take a course like this. The percentage of people working in the creative industries here is much higher than the national average. We have the best theatre scene outside London, the largest independent cinema, and galleries with links to the Tate and the VandA.

This course provides general training in management with the emphasis on understanding and managing creative enterprises and cultural organisations.
There are field trips and guest lecturers from the industries. You can also apply to base your dissertation on a project with a high profile arts organisation or event in the city.

When you graduate, you'll also qualify for the Chartered Management Institute's Advanced Diploma in Management.
