“I think that the program is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made – From having the opportunity to take various business and film classes to connecting and working with my fellow Dualers and classmates. You are provided with the best of both worlds – a world class business education coupled with a premiere film school. It is also exciting to be a part of a new initiative and help mold it into something special and unique. The access to the professors and career opportunities is unrivaled.” – MBA/MFA student
