NYU Kanbar Institute of Film and Television in the Tisch School of the Arts - Chair, Graduate Film Division
Helped develop NYU’s dual MBA/MFA degree program.
When Tintori joined NYU two years ago, he saw a unique opportunity to merge Hollywood and Wall Street by giving graduate film students academic training in both filmmaking and finance. Working with his counterpart at NYU’s Stern Business School, C. Samuel Craig, Tintori proposed a joint MBA/MFA degree program designed to mold a competitive new type of producer.
The intense three-year program launches this fall. Students spend their first year entirely at Stern, the second at Tisch and the third balancing courses from both schools.
At the end of their studies, graduates will boast both the hard skills of line producing and a firm business foundation, Tintori explains: “They will be in a good position to jump right into a studio or a network as an executive (or) to create their own production companies. Down the road, I think we’re going to look back at this and it’s really going to have a profound effect on the industry.”
