Creative Business

Course Type

Would you like to start your own creative business? Our Masters degree gives you all the tools to launch the businesses of the future – whether in games, film, TV, theatre, film, television, music or digital entertainment.

You will meet major players from every sector of entertainment across a busy, two-year part time course. You’ll learn the basics of industry – from business models, to marketing, raising finance, digital distribution, legal agreements, talent and more.

The course is taught by players from across the creative industries. It comprises two days per week of tutor-led seminars – combined with reading, assignment work, and self-led research tasks to be conducted outside the classroom in the student’s own time. Our participants not only learn from the best but have the chance to develop a network of contacts that can last a lifetime, as well as the opportunity to pitch for seed funding for their second year project.

Creative Business makes the most of both the thriving NFTS campus in Beaconsfield, and our office the heart of London’s Soho, right where many entertainment firms are located.   That means students benefit not only from London’s ‘global hub’ but also the School’s state-of-the-art facilities. We’ve designed the MA to allow students to combine it with professional work.

In addition, all NFTS students can attend Masterclasses – with NFTS’ regular line of major names giving you the benefit of their creative and business insights.

Recent guests have include David Fincher (Fight Club), Greta Gerwig (Little Women), Steve McQueen (12 Years A Slave), Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Ben Wheatley (Free Fire), Rapman (Blue Story), Louis Theroux, Debra Granik (Winter’s Bone), Denis Villeneuve (Bladerunner 2049), Lynne Ramsay (You Were Never Really Here), Sam Mendes (1917), Asif Kapadia (Senna), Joanna Hogg (The Souvenir), Russell T Davies (Doctor Who) and Richard Branson.
