If you are a budding entrepreneur like our Creative Business alumnus Jip Samhoud, don't miss our Creative Business for Entrepreneurs and Executives MA online open day on Tuesday 30 April. The MA is open for applications until 5 July 2019.

The two-year MA -- which students can combine with part-time professional work -- starts in January 2020 and gives students all the tools to create the media businesses of the future (across Publishing, Theatre, Games, Film, Television, Music and Online). It’s taught by over 100 major players from across the creative industries, and is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for you to build your new business and be helped to set up the financing for it – while on the course!

Recent course alumni include Jip Samhoud, a world-class entrepreneur.

After originally creating an online fashion and news TV service, Jip decided to dive into the world of VR (virtual reality) and AR (augmented reality). As well as creating pop up VR cinemas in Europe including the first fully permanent VR cinema in Holland, Jip seized the commercial opportunities of VR/AR with both hands.

His marketing and branding agency – called simply &SAMHOUUD – recently launched a promotional campaign for Albert Heijn -- Holland’s largest supermarket group. Using QR codes tied to supermarket tokens, the campaign led kids on an animated AR journey of dinosaur discovery -- delivering educational value for children while at the same time becoming the most successful online promotion in Dutch retailing history.
