This programme has been designed for students that will typically not have undertaken a production-based specialism at undergraduate level, and although they may have studied filmmaking or have had previous work-related experience in the subjects this is neither an expectation nor a requirement. Film and Entertainment Industries, while in constant change and evolution due to the advent of digital technologies are the up and coming areas of a society that is ever-fast moving towards a work-less, create and enjoy-more society.

The programme emphasizes practice (based on theory) which is underpinned through live industry projects and engages students through practice-based assessment tasks – students should be fully functional in the financing, marketing and distribution areas of the industry upon graduation.

The MBA Film Production degree is a postgraduate programme of study which can be undertaken in one year (full-time), or part time over a period of between two and three years. The degree provides a taught component which is preparatory to an extensive dissertation or film industry project. 


“The man of the third millennium will understand that all that which exists in the world is a wonderful representation of his own being, and that the entire universe in all its magnitude, is not really perceived from outside but incredibly dreamed and projected from within — a film script that will realize itself while you write it.”

Elio D’Anna, ESE Founder and President
