Music Business, Entrepreneurship & Technology
In the global and high-tech music, media, arts and entertainment industries, the job of recording, producing, mixing, marketing, distributing, selling and promoting music and other media is becoming more entrepreneurial than corporate. The Bachelor of Science in Music Business, Entrepreneurship & Technology is a new and dramatically innovative degree program that will provide graduates with the most current and comprehensive skills they'll need to be successful.
This cutting-edge curriculum takes great advantage of cross-discipline and collaborative opportunities in the all-arts environment of the University of the Arts. Courses cover the core areas of Business/Entrepreneurship (business fundamentals, music business, copyright and licensing, digital distribution, and innovation and entrepreneurship); Technology and Application (recording engineering, live sound engineering, and web design); a rich and diverse pool of Electives (throughout the University in all programs - dance, theater, photography, graphic design, illustration, etc.); and Music (music concepts, critical listening, applied lesson, performance classes, ensembles); and the Liberal Arts.
Entrepreneurship and hands-on business experience and applications are key components of this program. Students will record, edit and mix music ensembles in one of the school's three recording studios, engineer live sound for concerts in one of our five performance venues and recital halls, book and promote music concerts and other live performances, manage and coordinate major events and festivals, and even license, produce and host live and recorded web radio shows for the University's web radio station. Additional courses include topics in international business, internships and projects maximizing career portfolio strategies.
The Music Business, Entrepreneurship & Technology program is open to students from all backgrounds and experiences, and is now accepting applications from creative, highly motivated, resourceful and academically successful individuals with a keen interest in the entrepreneurial music, media, arts and entertainment business.
