Module description

This module will introduce key debates on digital convergence, remediation and innovation in terms of theory, method and practice, while examining their implications for cultural life and business strategies. During this module, you will come to appreciate the synergy that exists between different academic disciplines, as well as between different functions and hierarchies of the organisation. You will identify key factors for creativity and innovation that propel the structural transformation in the digital economy and explore the different analytical frameworks for understanding the transformation of old and new media in the digital economy.

Furthermore, you will be encouraged to extend your understanding of the interaction between technology, design and strategy to the contexts of communities, cities, nations and the cyberspace. Case studies will be used to facilitate discussions and you will develop your own ideas.

    • evaluated business models and performance of new ventures as well as established firms in the media industry
