Module content and teaching

Principal aims

To develop an understanding of the internal dynamics and attributes of creative and media enterprises, based on the tension between systematic organisational structures and routines and open-ended, unpredictable processes and products. To examine the emergence of distinctive approaches to human resource management and financial planning in response to the particular needs and attributes of creative and media enterprises. To review the relationship between creativity and organisation from the perspective of organisational theory.

Principal learning outcomes

Students will demonstrate an understanding of the distinctive features of creative and media enterprises, the key concepts and issues in the management of creative and media enterprise and contemporary management in the creative and media industries. They will gather, interpret and present evidence, with which to analyse organisations in the creative and media industries, questioning assumptions behind management theory and organisational practice. They will be able to reason critically and debate interpretations’ present an argument or case convincingly to a group of people and communicate what they have learnt, both orally and in writing. They will be experienced in working collaboratively with others and solving problems arising from case study research and written assignments.
