New cooperation with the Entertainment Master Class
As part of a cooperation between the two organizations, the Berlin School and the Entertainment Master Class, the format academy for entertainment television, are offering a bursary worth €20.000 toward the tuition of the Berlin School's executive MBA program in Creative Leadership.
Any alumni or current participants of the Entertainment Master Class are eligible to apply for the scholarship, which will be awarded by a jury comprised of both Berlin School and EMC representatives.
The application deadline is July 15 for admission to the next EMBA Start Module in Berlin, from Sept. 5-18, 2010.
With its internationally-renowned program of executive training for the television industry, the EMC has built a top-level network of industry legends, leaders and rising talent. The close involvement of respected practitioners -- the creative heads behind famous formats such as "Who Wants to Be A Milionaire", "Strictly Dancing" or "Deal or No Deal" -- makes the EMC so special, and it's a key reason why the Berlin School has felt such a bond with this unique program.
Given that Berlin School counts TV producers and broadcast executives from companies such as Globo SAT, ORF, Danish Broacasting, Tresor TV or Mideast Broadcast Centre among its participants and alumni, it makes sense to form a partnership that can unite the EMC and Berlin School communities.
In addition to the Berlin School bursary for EMC members, the EMC will offer Berlin School alumni or participants scholarships for the Entertainment Master Class. The program is comprised of 4 weeklong modules, each held at a key TV industry event and focused on one particular format, e.g. Game Shows, Reality TV, etc. The program can be booked as a whole or module-by-module, and the next module will be held in June at the Banff Festival in Canada.
