SSETA: The Entertainment Master Class
The Entertainment Master Class, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to education for executives in the entertainment television industry, will be offering its fourth module in South Africa this year.
The Entertainment Master Classes offer a unique executive education programme created by the industry for the industry.
Participants in the program will have the opportunity to learn from industry leaders, seek advice and guidance, share ideas, and build rewarding networks and professional alliances in this vibrant global community.
Following the change in the broadcast industry, the Entertainment Master Class’ curriculum has expanded to provide participants with the creative and economic skills base for the emerging opportunities of multiplatform production in a truly convergent, interactive and social media environment.
The programme is divided into four modules, each five days long, that take place in four different countries. Attendance at the first three modules is required in order to graduate. The fourth module is optional. This year the structure of the programme will be as follows:
Module 1: Games and Game Shows will take place from 7-13 May 2010 in Berlin/Germany
