Dutch Government Invests in Top Innovation Talent in Cooperation With NHTV

It has often been argued that one of the routes out of the current economic crisis is to identify and foster innovation. In his strategic plan for Higher Education, the Minister of Education has therefore earmarked budgets for the funding of professional master programs in various fields identified by the national “Innovation Platform”.

NHTV was earmarked by the Minister in the field of media. Following this, NHTV developed the Professional Master in Media Innovation program in cooperation with companies from the media industry and academics from Universities in the Netherlands and abroad.

The program will be taught by (PhD) lecturers from the Academy for Digital Entertainment at NHTV, lecturers from partner Universities in England, Switzerland and the United States, as well as key players from the (international) media industry. It is the first and only master in media innovation in the Netherlands. Comparable courses at foreign Universities usually cost around 50,000 Euros.
