The Rosen College of Hospitality Management announced Tuesday that it will offer a new bachelor’s degree program in entertainment management beginning fall 2016.
The four-year, 120-credit-hour program “will focus on the managerial aspects of entertainment,” according to a press release.
“Entertainment Management students will be immersed in the business side of entertainment in the key areas of design, engineering, operations, finance and marketing to equip them to identify, create and manage successful entertainment products,” according to the release.
The program was launched thanks to a $5 million donation from an anonymous private donor. Applications will be accepted starting in April.
