The Business of Entertainment Association

The Business of Entertainment Association (BEA) was formed in 1991 as a networking facility for Marshall students to secure positions in the entertainment industry. Today, the BEA not only provides valuable entertainment networking events, but also offers educational seminars, access to events in the field, career preparation tools, and other useful resources and events.

E2: Evolution of Entertainment Conference is the flagship annual event for the student-run Business of Entertainment Association (BEA) at the Marshall School of Business. Now in its 10th year, the E2 Conference brings together students and media industry professionals to address the most relevant issues facing the industry today. Last year’s conference had over 400 students, alumni, and business professionals in attendance. This year’s Conference will focus on “The Future of Screens” and will highlight many of the technological innovations, trends, and industry shifts made in the world of movies, television, and digital platforms.
