Concentration in Film and Media Management

FILM Management Cruise

This concentration is collaboration between the Department of Film and Media Studies in Emory College and the Goizueta Business School BBA Program. Participation is limited to BBA students and students who are film studies majors.

The purpose of the concentration is to provide students with knowledge, competencies and experiences directed towards pursuing film or media as a post-graduate or professional option. BBA students who complete this concentration will acquire grounding that will enable them to understand film and media in its historical and contemporary context as an evolving narrative form. Film Studies students who complete this concentration will acquire grounding that will enable them to understand the infrastructure and market mechanisms that support the creation and distribution of media content. All students will have the opportunity to pursue industry-related electives drawn from business and film disciplines. Finally, students will participate in a capstone course that will give them the opportunity to synthesize and validate their evolving perspectives in both an academic and an applied environment.

Students apply for the Film and Media Management Concentration the spring of their sophomore year. Admission is at the discretion of the concentration's directors.
