Testimonials

At VFS, we measure the success of our programs by what our students, alumni, and respected members of the industry have to say about us. Here's a sample of what people are saying about the Entertainment Business Management experience at VFS.

On the whole, EBM has taught me how the entertainment business world works, and I hope I grow and do justice to the job and the industry.

Preethi Ganapathisubramanian
Entertainment Business Management Graduate
Sales Executive, Hello FM

I used as many VFS resources as I could to work towards my goal... all of which helped me graduate with extensive knowledge and experience in the position I wanted to attain.

Jasmyn Pozzo
Entertainment Business Management Graduate
Publicist, The Promotion People

EBM gave me what I was lacking at the time: an adequate understanding of how the film business works... The biggest thing I learned is that it's all connected - from Accounting and Marketing to Music Business and New Media, there was something to be learned and applied from every class and instructor.

Nicky Forsman
Entertainment Business Management Graduate
Head of Development, OUTtv

VFS is particularly suited for placing people directly in the entertainment industry. As an instructor in the EBM program, I am able to see first-hand which students demonstrate the skills necessary to step into a job opportunity. I could tell early on that Nick (Soukthavone) had the drive and work ethic to excel in the fast paced sports industry. Sure enough, he impressed my colleagues in his internship with the Burnaby Express and I felt confident recommending him to our Sales Director at the Vancouver Whitecaps for a full-time position upon graduation.

Ryan McKee
Manager, Marketing & New Media, Vancouver Whitecaps FC

I learned a lot of proper negotiations skills, as well as public speaking, because I have to make a lot of presentations and have lots of meetings. I also use my marketing knowledge quite a bit.
