Master
(Master of Arts)

Creative industries have become a relevant part of our economy. The digital shift is a major driver. Berlin is a booming hotspot in the sector. Almost on a weekly basis, international players start activities in the city. Founders of all nationalities set up countless startups here. The main reasons for the attractiveness of Berlin are the tolerant and open atmosphere, its internationality, but also hard factors such as relatively low costs of living and rent and a large pool of dedicated and highly qualified professionals.
However, when the growth continues or even expands, the city will need a continuous feed of specialists. The impact on the educational system is yet unexplored. For the first time, a German university of applied science is starting a master program, dedicated to the management of the creative industries as a whole. This holistic approach has the advantage that it enables proactive responses to the drastic changes within the industry. We look mainly onto the transversal subjects of different creative industries. It also can apply new emerging competences such as trans-sectorial intellectual property management, crowd funding and community based marketing.
Management of creative industries follows a holistic approach. Management traditions and the crafts of the sectors are still relatively different. On the other side, transversal competences emerge, which are specific to more or less all sectors of the creative economy. Additionally, the sectorial break-up of the creative economy is shifting drastically - creative industries are increasingly characterized by a growing interdisciplinary dynamic. Disruptive innovations, the profession's specificities and constantly new inputs will enhance the challenge to keep the open, holistic approach without becoming pointless and superficial. Therefore, it is important to set up a very concrete "hands on" education so that we can keep our promise towards the students.

Statements of students

Our field trips to real world companies are really inspiring. We are able to talk to entrepreneurs about their businesses' perspective and capture insights for our own development. By this we link the theory from class into praxis.

One of the main reasons for me to choose the master in management of creative industries is networking. Exchanging ideas with both fellow students and professors is essential for the career entry.

Julian Borsch

What I especially like about the course is the expertise of the professors who have already worked in the creative industries. They always succeed in clarifying the content with examples that are related to practical examples.
