MSocSc in Management of Creative Business Processes


What gets you the job?

A major selling point for CBP graduates is that they can manage processes and set the frames in an organisation or in a project with specialised inputs from both artistic/creative specialists and business specialist. And they can bring these different contributions together in a shared output to reach a common goal. These skills are alternative to more mainstream business practices.

CBP students have an overview of the basic business administration tools, thus making sure that the inputs from creative minds are not disturbed by issues of e.g. budget and legal issues when negotiating agreements between e.g. artists and a record company.

They are able  to work problem- oriented by creating an overview, analysinge, processing data to create knowledge and acting on the findings. E.g. creating and sharing knowledge and ideas.
