Master in Visual & Digital Media - High-Impact Careers

A career that pushes limits

Everyone agrees: in the new digital economy, one of the greatest and most valued work skills is creativity. According to the World Economic Forum, creativity will be key to competing against AI in the future workforce.

But as John Cleese elegantly put it, “Creativity is not a talent. It’s a way of operating.”

It’s not only about ideas and inspiration, it’s about being able to conceive, develop, execute, manage, and evaluate all kinds of creative visual and digital media projects from start to finish.

The way brands communicate with consumers is constantly evolving, so jobs in visual and digital media are growing, and fast. There is a need for forward-thinking professionals who can innovate to break boundaries and truly connect with audiences. And that’s exactly what this program prepares you to do.

Visual & Digital Media Career Opportunities

Booming job prospects

Digital media will increase to 36% of all global advertising spending by 2020, meaning companies will be looking for digital media experts.- Deloitte

The key to consumers' hearts? Content in the form of stories

Storytelling conveys purpose, and businesses with purpose are the ones that ultimately stand out and capture consumer’s hearts and wallets.- Forbes

"During my master our final project consisted of launching a real media campaign for an NGO. From conceptualizing it, to producing it, to launching and measuring it… it was a real campaign. What I did there, was the perfect practice for what I do at Nike on a daily basis. I think very few universities prepare you for what is really out there and equip you not only with knowledge, but with a set of practiced skills."
"My experience at IE prepared me so well for my professional career and I am forever grateful. I learned so much at IE about business, innovation, marketing, and people. I know and understand everything my colleagues at work are discussing in my field, be it marketing, digital marketing, content production, how to behave, and the list goes on."
