Future Media: Pro is a postgraduate MA/MSc programme that does what it says:

- Future is finding your future and exploiting future developments in the digital marketing and advertising industry.
- Media is acquiring your digital media skill-set with top media agencies and emerging technologies.
- Pro means proving your professionalism in experiential assignments and professional practice.

Our courses ensure you gain real-world experience and knowledge so that you are ‘agency ready’ when you graduate. In your year on the programme, you’ll be planning digital marketing and advertising campaigns with leading digital agencies, developing brand and product promotions with prestigious clients, making mobile, social and virtual content with award-winning industry professionals and building new user journeys with emerging technologies and state-of-the –art resources.

You’ll be working from nine-to-five, four days per week for nine months in the Future Media: Pro Studio at Birmingham City University’s new £260 million City Centre campus. For the remaining three months you’ll be working with your choice of industry partner to professionalise your own expertise in the agency skill-sets you want develop: MA students tend to choose broad, strategic and creative roles while MSc students often prefer tactical, planning and analytics jobs. Either way, we’ll give you the tools you need to realise your ambitions.

You’ll get to work with top agency professionals and impressive client accounts on state-of-the-art campaigns as you tackle challenging briefs with our industry partners who include some of the worlds most important agencies: Unruly, Mediacom, Think Jam, Found, Red Bee Media, AMV XLAB and SapientNitro. And, you’ll be working in multidisciplinary teams to broaden your skill-sets as well as fine-tuning your own expertise with your MA and MSc peers.

Career opportunities

Past graduates of the course have gone straight into full-time employment and their own successful digital ventures. UK and international students have secured roles as varied as designers, digital campaign managers, UX managers, account managers, innovation executives and SEO specialists.

MSc graduates incline towards ‘planning’ roles, (the experience space around product positioning and consumer journeys), and are frequently employed as online customer experience managers in optimising accounts, performance marketing, search engine marketing and website auditing.
