Media Management Program Overview

All kinds of people become media professionals.
Gabelli School graduates become media leaders.

The Master of Science in Media Management (MSMM) curriculum covers a range of topics relevant to today’s media landscape, from international media systems to sports media to social media. MSMM students benefit from direct access to our faculty’s original research, and they attend media events throughout the year to discuss trends with New York executives and build their professional networks.

The MS in Media Management prepares students for careers in both traditional and new media industries, emphasizing innovation, leadership, public relations, marketing, brand strategy, entrepreneurship, social media, and product development.

The Gabelli School MSMM program is STEM-approved, offering international students the ability to work for a longer period without immediate need of sponsorship.
