      Considering how much money is at stake with every large-scale concert, movie or TV show, the behind-the-scenes action in the entertainment industry can be just as important as what transpires onstage. Business management skills and keen knowledge of entertainment law, copyright law and talent acquisition will prove indispensable for students wishing to make a dent in this competitive field. For those who need to sharpen their entertainment and media management skills with a minimum of time tied to a brick-and-mortar classroom, a few major colleges offer online programs in the entertainment business and media management.
