Turn Your Passion for Entertainment
into a Fulfilling Career
The Gregory Elias Entertainment Management Program will immerse students 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. The program will also develop important management skills, including leadership, communication, critical thinking, problem solving and teamwork, to prepare graduates for management roles in private and non-profit organizations. Rosen College’s location and industry relationships will ensure students benefit from exposure to national and global entertainment leaders in the classroom and superior internship and job placement opportunities.
The B.S. in Entertainment Management is an educational partnership between Rosen College and UCF’s College of Arts and Humanities. Students will take classes in both colleges to complete the 120-credit-hour program, which complements a variety of other disciplines.
Graduates may pursue careers in a variety of areas related to the entertainment industry, including live performances and events, historical/cultural/educational exhibits, digital media, film enterprises, tourism attractions, experiential hospitality-related products, special events, sporting events and recreational or leisure activities.
