The programme harnesses the expertise of two of Kingston's faculties: you will study specialist modules with the Faculty of Art and Social Sciences, and business and entrepreneurial skills at Kingston Business School.
You will work with students from other disciplines such as advertising, film making, fashion, design, music, publishing and museums, who will give you new perspectives on your own work, opening up new opportunities for collaboration and enhancing your own creative work. You will hone valuable workplace skills, including:
All students are encouraged to create a blog and a Twitter account to advertise their areas of interest and share what they are creating. This creates an online presence and a learning community that can be accessed 24/7.
Your final piece of work will be an independent piece of research and development on any topic you choose, for which you will get one-to-one supervision. Some students take this as an opportunity to create a large piece of creative work; others choose to develop a product or launch their own business. The brief is extremely open-ended, giving you the opportunity to forge your own path in the areas that interest you most.
If you are taking the dual degree, you will study a full-time masters programme at Kingston Business School during the autumn and spring semesters, then continue to Boston University to take another course in Boston over the following summer and autumn semesters.
Kingston Business School joins an elite group of the top 5 per cent of institutions worldwide awarded the prestigious AACSB accreditation.
