MBA - Producing
John Paul the Great Catholic University prepares students professionally and spiritually for careers in the diverse, yet complementary fields of media, business, and theology. It provides an academically rigorous, yet practical environment for students called to impact culture for Christ.
Our MBA in Film Producing provides a firm stepping-stone to becoming a successful producer ready not only to make great films but to running businesses that make great films. The curriculum empowers you with a rigorous integration of film producing and entertainment development courses, graduate business training, and Catholic formation in Scripture, philosophy, and theology. Students are equipped with a core knowledge in the key areas of both business and production: story & development; leadership & management; finance & accounting, marketing & distribution, competitive strategy, intellectual property law and more.
With industry-experienced faculty you will work in the classroom and in the real world as part of a functioning production company. You’ll begin by reading scripts and selecting a story that you’ll guide in your Advanced Production Project from pre-production through marketing and distribution. JP Catholic faculty help you in the challenge of building an extensive professional network that will be invaluable in finding the talent and funding you need to launch your project.
You will graduate equipped with a solid knowledge of core business principles and the competence and foundational experience to join a working studio or create your own.
