You should possess, or be expecting, a good first degree (equivalent to at least an Upper Second or a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.00) from a recognised university and/or have relevant professional experience. Particular consideration will be given to mature applicants.
You must be able to write and speak fluent English. If English is your second language you should have a score of at least 6.5 IELTS overall with a minimum 6.5 in the writing element. The TOEFL equivalent is 600 overall in the paperbased test (PBT) and 92 in the TOEFL internet-based test (IBT ), including at least 20 in the writing element.

In these, the interviewer looks for evidence of interest in and commitment to the study of communication, as well as analytical skills.
nternational Media Business MA is a new course aimed at recent graduates seeking a career in the media and content industries. It provides students seeking entry-level positions with a combination of business and production skills, recognising the changing demands facing today’s media organisations.
The past decade has seen unprecedented change as digital technologies force organisations to review their business plans, and as new forms of consumption and user behaviour question the traditional functions of the media. The course engages with these challenges and aims to give young media professionals the range of skills demanded by media firms as they adapt to radical change in the commercial environment.
This new Masters shares some of its modules with Westminster’s highly successful Media Management MA . Whether graduates plan careers in traditional media organisations or seek to create their own initiatives and businesses, the International Media Business MA aims to provide the analytical insight, operational knowledge and planning skills they need in order to prosper.

It is expected that graduates of the course will go on to find work in the management of the media industries, probably at an entry level but will use their knowledge and work experience to rise quickly in an organisation. The course is also intended to help those seeking to start their own media business.
