Business & Management of Entertainment:
Digital marketing tends to use tools that are increasingly close to the film industry, while the entertainment industry uses digital marketing more and more widely for promotion. Video content platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, and the industry on a larger scale, have accelerated the need for content and its promotion. This has created new opportunities
As the music industry develops rapidly, the Music Business Certificate serves both aspiring and established music industry executives, artists, producers, managers, songwriters, and publishers who need up-to-date information on the principles of
the music industry in the areas of A&R, touring, marketing, legal issues, publishing, and artist management.
