Course description

To become a successful manager in the creative and cultural industries you need to understand the sector. With a vibrant creative scene, Sheffield provides an ideal setting to hone your skills. We have a lively theatre scene, large independent cinemas, and galleries with links to the Tate and the V&A.

This programme provides general training in management with an emphasis on understanding and managing creative enterprises and cultural organisations.

There are field trips and guest lectures from those working in the sector. You can also apply to base your dissertation on a project with a high profile arts organisation or event in the city.

We recommend that you go on at least one of two organised field trips.

  • The Management School will pay for travel and accommodation.
  • You'll need to pay for food and drink. For each field trip, you'll need to provide a £50 deposit, which will be refunded after the trip.
