New Managerial Program for Film and TV Professionals

The Chang School is pleased to be the academic partner for a new program tailored to emerging management professionals in film and television. In October 2015, Women in Film & Television – Toronto (WIFT-T) is launching the Shaw Media Management Accelerator (SMMA) intensive program. This unique program will provide screen-based professionals who aspire to be strong and effective managers with the skills they need to set themselves apart in today’s highly competitive and global industry. “The SMMA embodies The Chang School’s commitment to engaging with community partners to develop and deliver relevant, industry-focused training programs to adult learners,” said Dr. Marie Bountrogianni, Dean of The Chang School.

The WIFT-T SMMA program website outlines further program details.
