Arts & Creative Industries Management programme testimonials
Maeva initially trained in finance, so the world of culture was not an obvious career path. But that wasn't going to stop her! Her passion for music drove her to persevere, and as soon as she joined the Specialized course "Management of Arts and Creative Industries", she wanted to find a music label. Sociable and ambitious by nature, she soon met many people working in arts and culture in Bordeaux, and it was this network that helped her to land a permanent contract in the sector.
Léo joined the course to pursue his interest in cultures of all kinds and the manner in which these complement each other. He loves different places and multidisciplinary events, with the theme of his dissertation being music festivals in Vietnam. It was therefore quite natural that he should join Ulule to help make musical projects a reality, including providing support for artists and organising crowd funding strategies, etc. The skills required include open-mindedness, natural curiosity, a sense of initiative and perseverance.
Chloé has lived in Bordeaux for several years, where she has developed a personalised wine-tourism business for international visitors, in addition to working as a communication and branding consultant, specialising in this sector. Thanks to her constant willingness to learn and her boundless energy, she has made a name for herself and embraced numerous activities. As an example, she trained as a sake educator (the only woman in France to do so).
Although his first love was music, Sebastien used the links within the creative industries and a declining culture industry to move into the video games sector: the leading cultural product sold in France. He developed his marketing expertise in this environment with the Assassin's Creed brand, and now has the new challenge of managing the Just Dance brand within Ubisoft Europe.
Eric set up his company during the second part of his placement, in an environment that is unique to him: urban culture. Les Initiés is a creative agency specialized in the production of photo and video content, based in Paris. If he got to where he is today, he says it's thanks to the network! His first clients are former business school classmates. In three years, Eric Meng managed to develop his business and worked with renowned groups such as Nike and Citadium.
“The Specialized course "Management of Arts and Creative Industries" was a massive plus: (…) on a professional level, recruiters were impressed; I always made sure I showed it off.” He owes his career to his conscientious work ethic, coupled with his good looks. Far removed from both the typical model and the average business school student at the start of his career, Morys steered away from the beaten track to claim his own unique style. On a university exchange to Berlin in 2015, Morys drew inspiration from those he met and quickly built himself a network in the microcosm of fashion.
Anne-Sophie has always gone all-out to achieve her ambitions and has successfully taken up international opportunities to reach the position she holds today. After an internship at a film library in Los Angeles, she became an audio-visual attaché at the Hong-Kong consulate. After falling in love with China, she chose to focus on this country and today works for a production company in Beijing. She sells Asian films (Korean, Indonesian, Iranian, etc.) internationally and also represents Uni France, selling French films in China. Her daily life is one of excitement, travel and culture.
