Henley Offering a Scholarship for its MBA for Music & Creative Industries Program

Scholarship covers full tuition, offered through a partnership with Ticketmaster

The University of Reading's Henley Business School has announced the launch of a new scholarship for its MBA for Music and Creative Industries program.

The new scholarship will cover the full tuition fees for one MBA student, and is offered through a partnership with Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster will also work mentor the chosen student, providing guidance on projects.

To apply for the scholarship, interested candidates must submit an essay on the qualities of leadership in the entertainment industry. The scholarship application will be reviewed once the candidate has been offered admission in the MBA program.

Shortlisted applications will be reviewed by a panel of judges, consisting of representatives of Henley and Ticketmaster. The winner will be notified by the end of October 2014; the program intake will begin in March 2015.

Henley's MBA for Music & Creative Industries program is designed for both managers who already work in the entertainment industry as well as those who would like to break into it. The curriculum covers a range of topics relative to creative industries, including copyright and intellectual property management, branded content, and the evolution of business models in the space.

With the MBA, Henley aims to help students land jobs in a large and growing sector. In the UK, the creative industries' contribution to the economy is valued at around £36 billion and employs some two million people, according to a recent analysis done by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI). Particularly, newer parts of the industry, like video game production, are on track for growth.

The MBA for Music & Creative Industries program takes 30 months to complete and is delivered in a part-time, flexible format.
