The Series Mania Institute is designed to welcome master’s-level students as part of an excellence program provided by leading business school Sciences Po Lille.

This course will run in parallel with the two-year master’s degree in Management of Cultural Institutions (MIC) at Sciences Po Lille, and will draw on multiple disciplines including history, economics, law, and an introduction to dramatic structure: All essential for future versatile executives who will be driving projects for TV series from conception to distribution. The various modules will be rounded out with time spent with industry professionals and students will benefit from experience acquired through work placements.

The aim is to prepare these students for all potential management positions in this industry including program managers for broadcasters, development managers for production companies, and project managers for subsidy bodies.

The first courses delivered to first-year MIC students began in September 2021.
