Entertainment Industry Management Video Essay

Follow the detailed instructions below for successfully completing your video essay and submitting it to Heinz College as part of your application for admission to the Master of Entertainment Industry Management (MEIM) program.

If you decide to submit a video essay, please prepare a one-minute-long video that lets the Admissions Committee know who you are, what you do well, and what you are looking to achieve in your graduate study at the Heinz College. Please note that the video must be of you, the applicant (not a proxy). If there is more than one person in the video, please clarify which person is you, the applicant. What you do or say is totally up to you as long as you provide the information requested.

Upload the video to an easily accessible website (such as YouTube) and give us the URL and any required access codes in the appropriate fields within the application for admission. It is the applicant’s responsibility to correctly configure the security and access settings for the video. We recommend that the applicant use the strongest privacy settings available while still allowing access to Heinz College. If using YouTube, we suggest using the “Unlisted Video” setting so that only individuals who have the URL can view it. The applicant is also responsible for adhering to the terms and conditions of the website used to share the video essay. Following evaluation of the video essay, Heinz College will retain a short excerpt or screen shot of the video as a part of the official student record.

We are unable to watch videos that come in any form other than a URL link. We will not accept videos sent by email or on DVD through the mail.

Important: The video essay option is limited to applicants for admission to the Master of Entertainment Industry Management (MEIM) program. The video essay is not an option for applicants to programs other than the MEIM program at Carnegie Mellon University.
