The music industry today needs a new type of professional—one who understands not only the music, but also the many aspects of business that are associated with its production. Our music business degree puts our students in the lead. They’re well-equipped to manage the legal, financial, artistic, and ethical issues that face the contemporary music business professional. We emphasize practical learning and career preparation through music business seminars, a practicum, and a senior portfolio. Even more, our Music Business major is interdisciplinary. It combines specialized studies in music and business with a core of general liberal arts and sciences. And because the music industry is diverse and constantly changing, our program is distinguished by exceptional flexibility. You can craft a curriculum that’s relevant to your own needs and interests.
