Media Management at KTH

The master's programme in Media Management is multidisciplinary, combining media technology, with intercultural communication, business management, project management and business development.

The programme focuses on the development and commercial operation of media products and services aimed at the consumer market. The programme consists of courses offering relevant knowledge regarding media technology, product development, media innovation, intercultural communication, market understanding and enterprise management in the media industry and related fields. During the two years all students will follow a programme integrating course that ties the programme together, covers cross-course topics and provides contact with the industry. The final term is devoted to the degree project, which is focused on using scientific methods to solve a problem within the scope of the programme. The project may originate from an industrial problem or be suggested by one of the research groups at the relevant departments.

The programme is organised around two main areas, one with technical courses on media production (video, print, web, interactive media). The other area focuses on management, including courses given by the School of Industrial Engineering and Management (KTH) and Stockholm School of Economics, typically in the form of project work. The programme is highly international, with students and faculty coming from all over the world.
