BA (Hons) Entertainment Management

“My course really laid the foundations for my career. A project working with the West Yorkshire Playhouse to market productions to young adults proved particularly invaluable. It gave me real experience of liaising with a client to come up with an effective marketing strategy, something I now do in my current role, working with clients to run powerful advertising campaigns that will be relevant for our listeners.
