Initiative for Media & Entertainment

The Media & Entertainment industry is fast moving and far reaching. While as a business it has experienced a boom over the last few decades and continues to grow around the world, the industry also has a critical social role as a purveyor of a public good with the ability to shape public opinion and transmit ideas and values.

Through its programs and research, IESE’s Media & Entertainment initiative is designed to help industry leaders stay on the cutting edge and understand their critical role in this fast paced industry. IESE offers industry leaders diverse programs to support them in their roles in the media and entertainment industry. Programs are offered through IESE’s Institute for Media & Entertainment (IME) and Executive Education.

Our Programs

IESE Business School has responded to demand from certain industry sectors for management programs that reflect the challenges particular to that sector. These programs also allow professionals from these sectors to network among their peers and gain new insights and ideas.
