Be ahead of the competition

While almost everyone has their favourites when it comes to, for instance, movies, music, or books, some of these creative products are far more successful than others. Why? Especially when you consider that in many cases, the differences in underlying product attributes are minimal. In this track, you will learn theory and study practice of international competition in creative industries like music, fashion, and the arts. You critically analyse the dynamic processes that drive success (or failure) by addressing tensions that are common in these industries: art versus commerce, creativity versus management, craft versus technology and individual inspiration versus creative systems.
