The Master of Entertainment Industry Management (MEIM) program provides comprehensive academic, professional and experiential training for entrepreneurial leadership in all screen-based entertainment media.
As traditional motion picture, television and video game businesses are merging into an integrated digital entertainment landscape, the MEIM program provides students with the most applicable skills to successfully learn development, production, marketing, distribution and exhibition practices across all entertainment platforms.
The MEIM program is more than a film producing, TV producing or game development degree. It is a hands-on path to mastering the fundamentals of today’s entertainment industry. At Carnegie Mellon’s Pittsburgh campus, first-year students are provided a solid foundation through quantifiable business and financial management classes taught by Heinz College’s world-renowned faculty. Moving to Los Angeles for the second year, students learn from top entertainment industry professionals at the MEIM Center, located within minutes of NBC/Universal, Warner Bros., Walt Disney Studios/ABC Television, CBS, and DreamWorks Animation. This second year is also a rigorous professional practicum, with students supplementing their full academic course load with 4 days per week in internships with top entertainment companies, including major studios, talent agencies, management firms, game publishers, marketing and distribution companies, broadcast and cable networks, and production companies.
