This cross-school undergraduate minor provides a foundation in the business, theory, and practice of media and entertainment with course work spanning the Stern School of Business, Tisch School of the Arts, and Steinhardt. From producing classes in Tisch, Business of Film at Stern, to artist management at the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, you’ll gain a fascinating entry into these evolving industries.
Students can apply for the minor via NYU Albert in the My Academics section of the Student Center.
The minor requires the completion of 16 credits, of which 8 credits must be taken at Stern. Stern students cannot count a required course from the Business Core or from their concentration toward the minor.
