How to manage creative professions?
New graduate degree in experience economics
In September CBS will be opening the doors to a new MA in Sociology – an education in experience economics called “Management of Creative Business Processes”. The education has been developed in close cooperation with the Danish film and fashion industry, as well as with several of the big Danish companies, like Nordic Film, IC Companys and Carlsberg. This education will prepare the graduates to manage and handle the special challenges that occur when creative processes become part of the market economy.
