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.

The 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 conference will focus on content from three perspectives: Creators, Distributors, and Investors. We are on the verge of a new revolution within the Entertainment industry as non-traditional companies enter the space, technology defines distribution, and billions of dollars are pledged towards experimenting with new forms of storytelling.
