Since graduating with a Master’s from BU in 2007, Alma Becirovic has forged a career in digital project management which has led to her being recognised as one of the country’s leading freelancers, working predominantly in East London’s Tech City – the UK counterpart to Silicon Valley.
Having completed her first degree at the Academy for Film and TV at the University of Sarajevo, Alma went on to enrol on the MA in Broadcast and Film Management (now MA Film Production) at BU. Alma said: “After researching a number of film-related MA programmes in the UK, I decided that the MA at Bournemouth University ticked all the required boxes for me. The course was a logical next step and gave me a new perspective on the business of film.
“The programme offered modules in TV and film management, from corporate strategy and operations to media law and marketing. The lectures encouraged critical thinking and there was a good balance between theory, concepts and practical work as well as regular talks from industry speakers who provided valuable insights.”
