Bachelor of Communication (Media Business)

For students who see themselves developing or managing a contemporary media business, the new Bachelor of Communication (Media Business) has been designed to help them cultivate the core management and communication skills for leadership in media industries. In response to industry demand, the Bachelor of Communication (Media Business) has been created for students with an interest in any aspect of media production, from film and TV, to advertising, music, games, online content, and more. This course equips students with the necessary business skills to be successful in their chosen field. With a basis in ethical and effective practice, they develop an understanding of how power, influence, economics, and legal obligations affect media processes and content creation.

The rapid rise of digital technologies globally has transformed how the media do business. Based in the fundamentals of business best-practice, including two subjects housed within UTS’s Faculty of Business, this course builds a range of transferable skills. It will equip students with the conceptual frameworks and practical skillsets to drive business success in competitive creative industries, deal with dynamic environments, and establish sustainable, ethical practices. They will learn how to execute astute decisions, harness the reach and influence of online distribution channels, and negotiate emerging challenges and opportunities within various workplace scenarios, including their own creative entrepreneurial work. Throughout the course students build a portfolio of work to promote themselves in the job market.
