Description The Masters of Digital Media (MDM) Program is a 20-month, full-time professional Master’s degree program in entertainment technology and digital media. With input from both academia and industry, the program’s curriculum is uniquely designed to meet new and expanding digital media markets. Through team-based, industry-facing projects and a four-month internship, students develop the professional skills required to be effective creators, practitioners and senior managers in the digital media industry. MDM students and alumni come from around the globe, and from a wide range of disciplines, including the arts, social sciences, business, computer science, and engineering. Working in small teams, students collaborate on intensive, four-month projects – often with industry clients. Past clients have included top companies in the industry, including Electronic Arts, Autodesk, Microsoft, and Telefonica, as well as government and non-profit organizations. For some graduates, industry projects have turned into successful start up ventures that range in specialization from interactive advertising technology to mobile games to games for social networks.
