The program is a partnership between NYU Stern and the Kanbar Institute of Film & Television at the Tisch School of the Arts. Designed to be the most comprehensive of its kind, harnessing the top faculty and resources of each school, the dual degree program produces highly employable individuals sought by major film studios, independent production companies and major television studios and networks.
Bridging the gap between the “creatives” and the “suits", the MBA/MFA dual degree program gives aspiring film producers the knowledge to navigate the fast-changing landscape of film financing and filmmaking today.
The MBA/MFA program is designed to be completed over the course of three years, instead of the approximately four years that it would take to complete the MBA and MFA degrees independently. The first year of the program is spent at NYU Stern, the second year is spent at Kanbar, and the third year is split between the two programs.
