The MLitt in Managing in the Creative Industries was taught until 2013/2014, and is no longer available.
This pioneering degree is designed around four core and two optional modules which cover the knowledge and skills required for working in the creative industries. The core modules incorporate:
In addition, you can choose two modules (one in each semester) from the range of options available within the school which reflect core research areas and expertise of staff. The degree is ideal if you are a student with a strong interest in the cultural and creative industries who wishes to gain increased management knowledge and skills which will help you understand creative practice and the business side of the creative endeavour.
The course is supported by researchers and academics in the School's Institute for Capitalising on Creativity (ICC), who are actively engaged in industry-based research across the broad range of creative industries and knowledge exchange initiatives. The course promotes active learning and relies heavily on you to define and investigate your own areas of research.

In addition to the scheduled classes above, you will have the opportunity to participate in our Masters Extra (MX) Programme, which includes guest lectures from eminent academics and business executives, specific sessions to enhance your career development opportunities and a range of corporate visits.
The distinct characteristics of the cultural and creative industries and their particular managerial and organisational challenges call for a consistent, informed approach to teaching management. Research links with a wide variety of creative and cultural businesses and organisations, and with higher education institutions specialising in art, media and ICT, ensure an equivalence of expertise in both management and creative awareness.
The programme aims to help you understand how intellectual, cultural, and social capital can be successfully used to create economic capital. It will provide you not only with an intellectual framework within which to analyse the creative industries, but also a means to better understand your own strengths and weaknesses.
This programme is not available.

"St Andrews has provided me with the opportunity to study alongside people with similar interests to my own from various corners across the globe, giving me the opportunity to work and adapt into a multicultural community. The course has given me an insight into the complex environment of working in the creative industries and has helped me link theory to practice in my future job. Through the interactivity of group presentations I feel prepared to confront the challenges of managing in a creative industry and understand the importance of working closely between management and the creatives."
