Course detail

- Description -

Our Digital Asset & Media Management MA takes a comparative and interdisciplinary approach, allowing you to explore and critically assess competing theories and practices from across new media digital management, archival, and information science. This will provide you with a well-rounded understanding of the requirements across many domains. In recent years there has been an explosion in the volume, complexity and range of digital content in a variety of media. This has been called the big data revolution and is closely connected to the increasing interest in the digital economy as an engine of growth.

There are very few institutions of any size that do not create and depend on the management, reuse and curation of digital media and information. Government, the public sector, Higher Education, cultural and creative industries and business all make and use these assets every day. This makes the skills we will give you increasingly attractive to employers. As well as developing the practical skills you need to manage digital media assets, you will also develop your critical and reflective capacities and increase your understanding of the interdependence between digital processes, technology, society and curatorial practice. This will enable you to enter into a technologically complex and fast-moving digital world of work.

Reasons you should consider the MA in Digital Asset and Media Management:

- Broadcast and publishing industries are increasingly using digital media in new ways, on new technological platforms such as tablets and mobile.
- Archives and libraries are increasingly depending on born digital materials and cultural heritage organisations are digitizing and making available digital materials relating to our history and culture.
- Businesses rely on digital media and content to develop, run and manage their future prosperity, leading to a big data revolution.
- Research managers and data scientists work with large volumes of digital data, running experiments, simulations and visualisations.
- Employers are looking for skilled professionals with knowledge and expertise in managing their valuable digital media assets.

- Course purpose -

The programme will prepare students for work or research in an economy and society which increasingly recognises the value of digital media and digital assets in general. Managing these and understanding how to exploit them within a complex digital information environment presents significant challenges for organisations. As a consequence there is an increasing demand for professionals with digital asset and media management expertise. The MA responds to this demand for digitally literate professionals to work in the educational and heritage institutions as well as the publishing, broadcast, and creative content industries. The programme aims to equip students with a range of strategic, technical and practical skills to provide direction and leadership in these areas.

- Course format and assessment -

Lectures on theoretical topics; demonstrations; practical classes and exercises.
The programme consists of a mixture of compulsory and optional modules (including an internship module), and a compulsory dissertation.
Modules are assessed by coursework and/or examination.

[Career prospects]]

Course detail

- Description -

Throughout the programme, students will be provided with opportunities to engage with the rich cultural heritage of the cities, with guest speakers and visits to memory and cultural institutions such as the British Library, the Southbank Centre, and the Berlin State Library experiencing all that studying in Berlin and London can offer.

Digital content and digital technologies are a defining feature of our age. Digital data, information and knowledge are an asset for cultural heritage, memory institutions, industry, commerce and government. They are fundamental for research and practice in fields such as the law and medicine. As individuals we increasingly communicate and record our lives and our memories in digital form. But digital information is fragile and complex and requires ongoing and active curation as we seek to ensure its longevity, innovate in its use, and exploit its social, cultural and commercial value. It is a shared once-in-a-generation challenge.

This programme will provide students with the core skills, knowledge and competencies to become leaders in the rapidly expanding field of digital curation. Students will study a wide range of subjects including metadata, preservation, knowledge representation, digital libraries, ethics and rights management, and new digital technologies and methods, including cloud and crowd-sourcing technologies. Students will also have an opportunity to undertake an internship to gain workplace experience. We want students to acquire a great deal of practical knowledge, but even more we want them to develop their critical and reflective capacities, and to acquire an understanding of the inter-dependence between the developments in digital processes, technology and curatorial practice. The MA will also provide an excellent grounding for students interested in going on to a PhD in Digital Curation or related area.

- Course purpose -

The MA in Digital Curation is designed to prepare students for leadership roles in organisations and enterprises with significant volumes of digital information and knowledge. The programme responds to the increasing demand for digitally literate professionals to work in education and heritage institutions, as well as wider industry by equipping students with a range of strategic, technical and practical skills to provide direction and leadership in the curation of digital information and assets.

- Course format and assessment -

Lectures on theoretical topics; demonstrations; practical classes and exercises. Modules are assessed by coursework and/or examination.

The philosophy of the Building Information Management course reflects the increasingly digital, multi-disciplinary and integrated nature of project delivery, influenced by the demand from governments and clients for greater efficiencies on construction projects. Read more
The philosophy of the Building Information Management course reflects the increasingly digital, multi-disciplinary and integrated nature of project delivery, influenced by the demand from governments and clients for greater efficiencies on construction projects. These efficiencies can be gained from more accurate prototyping, simulation, costing, planning, design, production and operation, and will be an output of sound information management and data input to Building Information Modelling (BIM) software.

The unique nature of Westminster's Building Information Management MSc is the focus on 'Management', which will create professionals who are able to manage the whole construction process and the information associated with this. The course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).

The future construction professional requires knowledge and understanding of building information management, as well as how an integrated project team will take a project from inception to completion. Collaborative working and co-ordinated information exchange will increase the efficiency of project delivery and asset performance, leading to better sustainability over the building lifecycle and a satisfied client. This building information management approach is a strategic view of integrated project delivery that encompasses both the demand side (client) and supply side (consultants, contractors and suppliers).

Course content

The Building Information Management MSc is mainly aimed at graduates who are already in construction-related employment and who aspire to senior positions in their field. The course aims to provide a challenging, stimulating and professionally relevant course of study which is directly related to the effective management of construction projects.

The course aims to offer learners flexible access to the core content, whilst still providing the discipline and structure of regular attendance at the University. This is achieved through the use of a 'blended learning' approach. The design of the part-time course recognises the significant challenges of combining postgraduate-level study with full-time professional employment.

Modules

The following modules are indicative of what you will study on this course.
Core modules
-BUILDING INFORMATION MANAGEMENT AND INTEGRATED PRACTICE
-CORPORATE MANAGEMENT
-CONSTRUCTION DISSERTATION OR WORK-RELATED PROJECT
-ECONOMICS OF THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
-PROCUREMENT
-RISK MANAGEMENT FOR PROJECTS

Professional accreditation

This course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Chartered Institute of Building.

Associated careers

This course is aimed at graduates who are, or have been, in construction-related employment who aspire to senior positions in the construction industry.

Enhancing students' employability and industry connections is a key aim of the course. In 2013 Westminster ran Project Intermission, in partnership with industry mentors DMA Architects, Studio Klaschka and Gardiner & Theobald. Students from various built environment disciplines worked collaboratively on a 'real' project for a 'real' client, with input from industry practitioners, using cutting-edge Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies. From this project, construction student Kevin Hernandez secured a work placement with AECOM. Project Intermission was also shortlisted for a CIOB International Innovation and Research Award 2013.

HEC PARIS’ HISTORIC EXPERTISE IN MARKETING

As France has long been recognized for fashion, luxury and a large number of premium brands (L’Oréal Paris, Pernod Ricard, etc.), it comes as no surprise that one key asset of HEC Paris has always been its expertise in the field of marketing. In fact, as the leading Business School in France, HEC Paris has constantly fueled with talents and innovative ideas leading global companies in French areas of excellence, such as Luxury (cf. Luxury certificate (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Non-degree-programs/Certificates-available-to-current-HEC-students-only/Luxury/Why-this-certificate) and chair (http://www.hec.fr/Faculte-Recherche/Chaires-et-Centres/KERING)), Cosmetics and fashion at large (cf. Leadership Center (http://www.hec.edu/Faculty-Research/Chairs-and-Centers/HEC-Paris-Leadership-Center-Chair) with L’Oréal Paris), Premium brand management (cf. Leadership certificate (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Non-degree-programs/Certificates-available-to-current-HEC-students-only/Leadership/Why-this-certificate) with Pernod Ricard), Aerospace (cf. Innovation Management in Aviation & Aerospace certificate (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Non-degree-programs/Certificates-available-to-current-HEC-students-only/Innovation-Management-in-Aviation-Aerospace/Why-this-certificate) and chair with Safran (http://www.hec.edu/Faculty-Research/Chairs-and-Centers/SAFRAN-HEC-SUPAERO) )…

Today, HEC Paris’ expertise in marketing benefits all sectors, traditional and modern, both in France and on a global scale, from the most traditional one to the most modern one, including for instance the digital and entrepreneurship area (cf. the Google chair (http://www.hec.edu/Faculty-Research/Chairs-and-Centers/GOOGLE) and the Digital Entrepreneurship certificate (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Non-degree-programs/Certificates-available-to-current-HEC-students-only/Digital-Entrepreneurship/Why-this-certificate) and chair (http://www.hec.fr/Faculte-Recherche/Chaires-et-Centres/Digital-Innovation-for-Business) ).

BALANCE BETWEEN THEORY AND APPLICATION

The objective of the program is to equip students with the necessary knowledge and techniques that will enable them to successfully solve a broad set of marketing problems. With this objective in mind, the Marketing faculty is composed both of academics who publish leading research and recognized professionals who bring a wealth of knowledge from real-life cases.

STRONG CONNECTIONS WITH THE BUSINESS AND MARKETING COMMUNITY

Participants will be given frequent opportunities to gain real “hands-on” experience and to interact with key players from the business world through conferences, workshops, projects, internships and career fairs organized on campus. They will also be given the chance to put their newly acquired knowledge into practice through business cases with well-known companies, offering them an invaluable opportunity to enrich their skills.

TWO TRACKS WITH EQUAL CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
