The future belongs to the innovators - The dreamers who are also doers. It starts with creativity at the convergence of media and technology. Ideas that not only cross platforms but anticipate new ones.

But it also means knowing how to apply those ideas. That is what being a do-er is about. And what the Master’s in Media Ventures is about: our faculty teaches you the skills, strategy, and process of developing your ideas to build a successful career.

So whether you have got the next killer app or want to take a traditional industry leader to the next level, get ready to create the media’s future. And your own.

As part of the program, you will have the opportunity to complete two internships at start-ups or traditional media companies. You will gain crucial real-world experience and a network of industry contacts.

Media Ventures is a 12-month, three-semester program. Spend the fall in Boston, take classes, honour your innovation skills, and develop your thesis project. Then, in the spring, head to Los Angeles to experience innovation in the entertainment industry. During the summer semester, all Media Ventures students complete an internship and gain industry contacts in Los Angeles.

This is no passive program. Designed by leading media executives, the Master’s in Media Ventures curriculum is hands-on and career-oriented.

Start with an idea and build it out throughout the program. Learn the process of taking an idea from concept to the market. Then, pitch it to a panel of leading media executives and entrepreneurs. Media Ventures faculty, COM alumni, and biz-savvy mentors coach you through the process, one on one.


Strategies to bring new ideas to the media marketplace.

How to use content and technology to create something original and profitable.

Practical entrepreneurial tools needed to test and refine a new venture concept or existing product innovation.
