About the Seminar
2022 Program Dates To Be Announced
In an effort to bridge the gap that can sometimes exist between classroom and industry, IRTS provides an annual opportunity for university educators to meet with senior media and entertainment executives.
The media landscape offers more tools and platforms to reach consumers than ever before, and so the next generation of professionals —armed with foundational industry knowledge— must have a comprehensive understanding of how to help their employers harness the full potential of this increasingly complex environment.

they can use in their teaching to better support students
IRTS wants to invest in those who are most passionate about teaching the next generation of professionals, as well as those who can best apply their knowledge to curriculum or the academic community at large. Today’s digital universe requires a wide range of skills.
Professors and educational staff from all departments are encouraged to apply.
While our program has historically attracted faculty from marketing, advertising, and all communication disciplines, we are also eager to include professors of liberal arts, business, mathematics, statistics, information technology, and computer science! There is high demand in our industry for students from a multitude of disciplines, but they tend to lack awareness of where opportunity exists in our rapidly evolving business.
