Course content

This course is recognised as a world leader in music business management education, and will prepare you to become one of the next generation of music industry leaders and music entrepreneurs. All teaching staff on the course are currently working in the music industry, and every week there are a number of high-level industry guests. You will need to be a self-motivated and open-minded student, as this is an intense course, but one which can help you to progress your career across a wide range of music business disciplines.

Course content

Working with music industry leaders and organisations, the course has developed a unique curriculum. You will be able to combine a strong underpinning of key business skills (finance, leadership, organisational management, marketing and entrepreneurialism), with essential music industry management knowledge (strategic innovation and technology, intellectual property and copyright, and a focus on the live industry and digital content exploitation).

Teaching is mainly through lectures and group work, and you will be assessed via a combination of course work, individual assignments and group projects, and mid-term tests. In each module there is a minimum of two assignments. The final project is a report of a minimum of 12,000 words.

Please note, this course is taught at our Central London site (New Cavendish Street).
