Birkbeck, University of London

Course Introduction

This course is aimed at those with work-related or personal projects, or those wanting to change direction, drive innovation and change or plan for a start-up. The Postgraduate Certificate in Digital Media Management examines issues and opportunities in digital media, giving you practical and analytical skills and experience in the management of digital media development from strategy, purpose and initial project research to the proposal, presentation and marketing through a distinctive and professional business plan.

Assessment is an integral part of your university studies and usually consists of a combination of coursework and examinations, although this will vary from course to course - on some of our courses, assessment is entirely by coursework.

Graduates have transferred their skills and knowledge to organisations needing digitally aware individuals who can plan and execute change. They may become digital media specialists and work in growing areas of digital media marketing and publishing online or market research and training.
