  • Overview

    Media and Entertainment Business is the most entrepreneurial media program in Flanders.  Surrounded with experts who have a background in the media industry, students are provided with the necessary skills to assess the viability of their media product: a good story (Mediatise), economic viability (Monetise) and a loyal public (Mobilise).

    Students immerse themselves into the international media world and are trained to work with existing or new media products and repurpose/package them for a new international context.

    Exchange students choose either the IMEB track business design or the IMEB track media design and take min. 27 ECTS, max. 33 ECTS (2 electives).
