The Executive Master in Marketing and Creativity (EMMK) is a 16-month, part-time programme beginning in September.

This ground-breaking programme is designed for current marketing professionals wishing to stay ahead of the curve, as well as those planning to enter the sector and facing the challenge of getting up to pace.

The EMMK offers all the elements of a high-level Executive Master in Marketing, combined with an innovative approach which places creativity at its very core. It combines a series of key modules with group work and innovative Creative Industry Seminars involving corporate partner organisations.

The programme will be delivered in English by ESCP Europe's highly-experienced faculty and leading industry practitioners. The mix of 5 three-day weekends, 4 full-week sessions and a total of 10 days distance learning, is designed to fit into busy work schedules and provide diverse business perspectives from three locations: London, Paris and Torino.

The EMMK curriculum is designed to fulfil four main objectives:

• Creativity: A definite focus on creativity and its value is what makes this programme stand out from the perspective of both candidates and employers – creativity runs as a theme throughout all modules. Our unique Creativity Workshops, Case Studies and Creative Industries Seminars help you develop your own creativity skills and bring you face to face with best practice across a number of categories.

• Marketing: The marketing modules equip you with all the essential skills and knowledge necessary for successful high-level practice in marketing across any type of organisation and sector, both consumer and B2B. Throughout the marketing modules, we adopt the perspective that value creation begins with – and is driven by – customer experience and benefits.

• Management: To leverage the full benefits of creative thinking in marketing requires a perspective understanding of what makes creative thinkers different. These modules help develop the full range of management skills needed to deliver high performance and results by identifying and harnessing the creative talent in an organisation.

• Analytics: As the role of analytics in Marketing increases and the availability of rich “Big Data” continues to explode, we see Analytics as an important pillar of the Executive Master in Marketing & Creativity. Innovative modules integrating state-of-the-art thinking for a creative approach to marketing analytics have recently been developed for the course. You will learn not just how to count, but what to count and how to gain advantage from what you count.

This is a unique and innovative programme that explores creative practice, meaning-making and learning in and out of school. You will learn about the meanings of literacy and creativity in the context of an increasingly socially diverse, digitally mediated and multimodal culture.

primary and secondary teachers with interests in literacy, English studies, media, drama and creative arts
arts and creative practitioners with an interest in learning and education
recently qualified teachers with an M-level PGCE, who subject to approval may be able to carry over 60 M-level credits

The course will be taught by a team who have recognised expertise in teaching and research into creative practice and creative pedagogies, literacies and media production. They have strong links with national and local arts organisations, educational facilities and schools and will draw on these for outside speakers and workshop leaders.

Innovative Features

As well as developing academic and intellectual skills, the programme will develop practical skills including the promotion of creative approaches to pedagogy. The course will offer opportunities for you to develop your own creative capacities both as individuals and through collaboration, producing texts appropriate to different contexts of practice and using various media.

Opportunities for practice-based placements in schools and/or community-based projects will be available.

Approaches to assessment will encourage the submission of practice-based portfolios alongside more traditional, academic essay-based approaches.

As well as appealing to a wider constituency, the programme is designed as a subject-based route of progression for former PGCE students in English studies and the arts holding up to 60 M-level credits.

Overview

This innovative programme explores how arts and creative enterprises work in theory and practice, as well as the impact they can have on individuals and communities.

Then you’ll choose from optional modules to focus on topics that suit your interests and career plans, such as arts management or culture and place, and investigate topics like audience engagement and cultural policy.

You’ll be taught by leading researchers in a city with a diverse cultural landscape. Whether you’ve already started your career or see yourself moving into the sector, this programme will give you the knowledge and skills to support your ambitions.

The degree is also available to study part-time over 24 months. The part-time MA may be of special interest to those who are working in related fields as part of their career development.

You’ll study in a city with a rich cultural life that’s also a hub for business and entrepreneurship – home to the Leeds International Film Festival and Leeds International Piano Competition, as well as a variety of galleries, museums, theatres and other cultural facilities.

Our purpose-built landmark building [email protected] houses two professional-standard and publicly licensed theatres that regularly host work by both students and visiting theatre companies – one of which is a technically advanced research facility.

Our School includes rehearsal rooms, two black-box studios, costume construction and wardrobe stores, a design studio and scenic workshop, video editing and sound recording suits as well as computer aided design.

Our links with external organisations are among our biggest strengths, giving you the chance to take performance to different environments outside of the university context.

Opera North, West Yorkshire Playhouse, the National Media Museum, Leeds City Council, Red Ladder Theatre Company, Limehouse Productions, Phoenix Dance Theatre, the National Coal Mining Museum for England, HMP New Hall, Blah Blah Blah Theatre Company, the BBC and HMP Wetherby are all among our partners.

Course Content

Core modules in Semester One will lay the foundations of the programme. You’ll explore different theoretical approaches to understand the relationships between culture, creativity, and entrepreneurship, learning about cultural industries and how public policy impacts on cultural development.

To help you focus your studies in the areas that suit your interests and career plans, you’ll choose one of two optional modules which allow you to specialise in either the relationship between culture and place or management and leadership in the arts and cultural industries.

You’ll then choose another optional module to complement or broaden your studies.
