The new MA in Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship programme, with an exit route at Postgraduate Diploma level, will be attractive to undergraduates who either wish to develop a business arising from an existing creative practice or to understand how to create the infrastructure and environment for new creative businesses in the fields of Computing, Design, Fashion, Media and Communications, Music, or Theatre and Performance to flourish in a variety of contexts (eg city, rural, regional, national).

Description of Creative & Cultural Entrepreneurship MA

The MA will be taught in partnership by a number of departments within Goldsmiths and with key individuals and organisations in the creative and cultural industries sector. Our collective approach is to integrate entrepreneurship within the development of creative practices and to take a `creative´ approach to the development of new businesses and the infrastructure that supports them. This programme is designed to allow you to continue to innovate, but also to provide the requisite business/entrepreneurial skills and attributes to commercialise your creative and cultural practices and/or knowledge. You´ll be able to build on a historical and theoretical understanding of cultural and creative industries and the development of a cultural economy to create your own creative initiatives, which might be research-based, policy-based, practice-based, or a combination of any or all of these.

The programme contains four taught courses and a further dissertation/portfolio component. You will have a range of choices throughout the degree enabling you to design a pathway that is most relevant to your academic, business and career ambitions. All students take 'Theories of the Culture Industry: Work, Creativity and Precariousness' and 'Entrepreneurial Modelling', and your chosen pathway will determine the 'Creative Practice' course and 'Entrepreneurial Practices and Modes of Production' course that you take. In order to enable collaborative learning amongst those seeking to develop creative and cultural businesses and those already within them, we intend wherever possible to teach all students together, irrespective of the particular route on which you are registered.
