Course content

Aimed at those who are passionate about music and who want to set up their own music-related business, this unique MA/Diploma/Certificate in Music:Innovation and Entrepreneurship from University of West of Scotland is the first of its kind in the UK .
Get your music-related business off the ground with our JAMES accredited Masters course and make the most of our industry connections with major and independent record labels.
Traditional modes of thought in relation to many aspects of the music sector are now obsolete and larger, institutional processes have been superseded by more technologically democratic ways of conducting business. The rise of the ‘new artist model’ which places emphasis upon commercial autonomy by artists and practitioners within the music sector has also created the need for the development of a new music business skillset which this course addresses.
