Goldsmiths, University of London

Course Introduction

The MA in Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship should be attractive if they 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. It's an ideal Masters if they want to develop a business in one of these fields, or in new areas of the creative industries. All students bring a business idea to the programme to use as a live case study. The Masters is taught in partnership by a number of departments within Goldsmiths and with key individuals and organisations in the creative and cultural industries sector. The 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 them to continue to innovate, but also to provide the requisite business/entrepreneurial skills and attributes to commercialise their creative and cultural practices and/or knowledge. Students will be able to build on a historical and theoretical understanding of cultural and creative industries and the development of a cultural economy to create their own creative initiatives, which might be research-based, policy-based, practice-based, or a combination of any or all of these. Through the programme, students will develop techniques to move their creative and critical thinking to entrepreneurial thinking.
