Tepper School of Business at CMU | Groups





The Media & Entertainment Club (MEC) promotes awareness and knowledge of the Media and Entertainment (M&E) Industry to the Tepper community through professional, social and educational interactions among peers, industry leaders and the broader CMU community."

We put on events throughout each year so Tepper students can learn more about all aspects of the M&E industry. Events include:

Los Angeles Trek

This annual trek provides an opportunity for students to see the M&E industry first hand and network with visits to leading entertainment companies in Los Angeles such as Hulu, Riot Games, Warner Brothers, Disney and more. Recruiters at these treks look for MBAs to fill internship and full-time positions including but not limited to product management, strategy, finance, marketing and operations. 

ETC Festival

Every year the Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) hosts the MEC, professors from various schools, industry experts and a limited number of CMU students at the ETC Festival. The festival includes hors d'œuvres, drinks and the chance to be one of the first people to play video games created by the ETC students. Video games come from a variety of platforms including AR, VR, console, etc. 

Speaker Series

We host speaker series to allow current students to learn from and discuss with industry experts. 
  • How Digital Media is Transforming the Entertainment Industry
  • New Technologies and Applications to Entertainment (AR/VR)
  • Intro to Schell Games by Jesse Schell, a CMU professor and creator of Schell Games (a VR, PC, Mobile Games company headquartered in Pittsburgh)
  • ...and more.

Case Competitions

MEC supports the Interactive Case Competition. This event fosters industry education, recruitment, networking — and cash prizes! In 2018, the competition will be held at the HBO HQ in New York City

Movie Nights/Social!

The MEC organizes movie nights that include not only the hottest movie releases of the year, but most importantly lots of FREE food/snacks!
