The Rosen College of Hospitality Management has created a new degree program that will allow those who want to work behind the scenes an advantage in the classroom: a Bachelor of Science in Entertainment Management.

The new four-year undergraduate degree program starts in Fall of 2016 and was made possible with a $5 million private, anonymous donation.


“This four-year undergraduate program will focus on the managerial aspects of entertainment and is the first of its kind to be offered by a SACS-accredited public institution in the United States,” according to UCF Today.

In partnership with the College of Arts and Humanities, this degree will be ideal for students wish to work business and management within the entertainment business.

“Entertainment Management students will be immersed in the business side of entertainment in the key areas of design, engineering, operations, finance and marketing to equip them to identify, create and manage successful entertainment products,” UCF Today stated.

The program will be a total of 120 credit hours with classes within Rosen College and the College of Arts and Humanities.
