B.F.A./B.Mgt.

The combined Bachelor of Fine Arts - New Media/Bachelor of Management (B.F.A./B.Mgt.) degree program is one of very few degree programs in Canada to blend new media and management. The combined degree expands your options and bridges the gap between the fine arts and management disciplines, which will give you a competitive advantage and prepare you to use new media to maximum effect within an organization, or provide strong knowledge about how to manage innovation and entrepreneurship.

This option, with limited seats in Fine Arts, combines new media, film and video production, art, drama and music with organizational behavior, informational technology, accounting, marketing, management policy and human resources management.

You will have a firm foundation for careers that combines interactive technology and management, such as: entrepreneur, new media company manager, public relations specialist, media and marketing researcher and corporate communications specialist.
