New York City is a global epicenter of the international media and entertainment business. The city is also an incubator for countless media and entertainment startups. What happens in New York is broadcast to the world.

IESE's New York Center features state-of-the-art learning environments and open spaces for breakout sessions. The Advanced Management Program in Media and Entertainment (Media AMP) launched its 4th edition at IESE’s New York Center in midtown Manhattan this week. As the only program of its kind, the Media AMP is designed to equip top-level executives with the leadership capabilities and global view to lead their companies in this fast-paced industry.

This year’s international roster of participants includes C-suite level executives from a range of entertainment companies including CNN, Canadian Broadcasting Corp., Imagina, DR Danish Broadcast (Denmark), Radio Africa (Kenya), Niiu Publishing GmbH (Germany), and TV Independencia (Brazil). With modules in Los Angeles as well as New York, this year’s AMP Media includes a Leadership Forum with a line up of industry "movers and shakers" including Frank A. Bennack, Jr., Hearst Corporation, Steve Capus, former President of NBC, and Alexandra Wallace, head of NBC’s Washington bureau.

"Each Leadership Forum lets participants enjoy close and personal small group interactions with major media and entertainment executives, allowing participants to hear them tell their personal stories about how they got to where they are today, their business challenges and views of their businesses' futures," said Program Director James MacGuire. "These exchanges lead to unparalleled networking opportunities with industry leaders who are changing the face of the business."

The Media AMP consists of four week-long modules conducted over a six-month period. To find out more.
