Advanced Management Program in Media and Entertainment (Media AMP)
The Advanced Management Program in Media and Entertainment (Media AMP),a first of its kind in the industry, is designed to prepare seasoned executives to lead their media and entertainment businesses into a successful future. The program prepares experienced executives for their next big assignments by providing them with the business skills they will need to run successful enterprises and quickly react to any disruptive technologies and competitive challenges that may emerge.
Executives who participate in this program typically have titles like CEO, COO, President, Senior VP, Managing Director, Director General and General Manager. They represent media and entertainment companies from all over the world.
The Media AMP provides senior-level networking opportunities, access to top industry leaders, and the opportunity to expand your knowledge on critical business issues with minimum disruption from your professional and personal commitments.
The program is presented by IESE Business School and The Paley Center for Media in cooperation and with the support of the UCLA Anderson School of Management.
In addition to getting senior-level networking opportunities and working with world-class academics, Media AMP participants also have the benefit of exclusive, unparalleled access to some of the top industry leaders at the program's Leadership Forums.
The Media AMP's Leadership Forums allow participants to interact with top industry leaders in a private, personal setting. They feature one-on-one conversations with industry "movers and shakers" and executives who are changing the face of the business.
