MEIM Career Outcomes

Thanks to the connections they make and the highly relevant skills they acquire during the program, MEIM graduates are extremely competitive in a field known for being difficult to enter. On average, 90 percent of MEIM graduates find full-time employment in the screen-based media or music entertainment industries within six months of graduation.



Job titles and salary information for the MEIM program.



Heinz College treats career development as seriously as academics. The MEIM program has a dedicated Career Services Director who works individually with each MEIM student from the time they enter the program.

Our cohort size is small (around 30 students) so we know the students and they know their advisors. We are committed to helping students prepare for the exciting, competitive environment of the entertainment industry, not only through the quality and structure of our curriculum, but through a constant focus on the personal career development tools graduates need to succeed in this fast-paced business.

The Growing MEIM Alumni Community

MEIM Alumni are among the program’s biggest boosters. Alumni provide leads to internship and job opportunities, and attend many of the regular program events including the Welcome Week that kicks off the second year in Los Angeles. Many are actively engaged as mentors and career coaches for current students. Alumni are regularly invited to share their insights and experiences with the current students, both in Los Angeles, on-campus in Pittsburgh, and when we travel to New York, Austin, TX, or Cannes, France.
