What You’ll Learn
In the Music Management Concentration, you’ll add a focus on the management side of the industry to your core MBI courses, gaining a solid foundation in accounting, business software and spreadsheets along with an understanding of event and venue management and promotion. Gain direct experience using what you’re learning through being part of the two-course Record Label Practicum and work as part of the Eneekay Records team to produce and promote a 3-song EP, or help manage the program’s annual Gregg Fest music festival each spring on campus. You’ll graduate ready to collaborate with other industry professionals with solid foundational skills and experience to adapt and flourish in the dynamic music business.
“If you’re willing to put in the work, the MBI program is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. The culture in the program is indicative of the culture in the industry, and a lot of people here have the right attitude — they really care about what they’re doing and what they’re part of.”
