Did you watch a favorite program on an over-the-air TV? On a computer? Via satellite? On your cell? Did you read a book from the library? Buy one from amazon.com? Listen to a book in your car? Download one to your iPod? Did you surf the net, blog, podcast, chat, listen to radio by satellite, or “Google” a classmate or a teacher? The myriad of media choices has made it an incredibly fun time to be a media consumer. But, this course will shift your view from that of a media consumer to a media manager. How have these changes impacted what media managers do and how they do it? In order to interpret the media industry through the eyes of a media manager you will need to learn and understand four broad areas influencing the industry: 1) How content is developed; 2) How media organizations are structured; 3) How media companies make money, and; 4) the skills managers use to help bring success to each of these areas. This class will focus on electronic & digital media industries, including television, cable, satellite, radio, online and mobile. Other issues to be discussed include: the role of government, the impact of technology on media businesses and challenges facing public media. The course will consist of lectures, classroom discussion and activities, online readings and research, written assignments and exams. Course Goal: Students will understand the way in which media company organizational and managerial methods impact creativity, content, and economic success. Students will also begin to understand how their own preferences shape their managerial philosophies and tendencies.
