The Music Business Degree

Professionals in music business come from all types of educational backgrounds. A student who wants to follow this path most often obtains a degree in music business, marketing, or even entrepreneurship.

Music business degrees require courses of study exploring both the art of music and copyright laws, economics, and growth strategies. The music business graduate could work for or start a record label with these skills or go on to manage and promote the next big chart-topping pop star.

Whatever their chosen path, how to proceed with music business school admissions requires a clear understanding of the specific student’s desires, goals, and aspirations. It also requires a focus on specific college and university programs, and that’s where we come in.

The choice of music business schools is only worth how well it fits the student in question. There is a right school for every student, and inside Music Schools can help get you there.
