The Bachelor of Science in Music with a Concentration in Music Management is an interdepartmental degree program that combines music, economics, and business courses to prepare you for a career in music business.
Along with courses in applied music, music theory, and music history that develop your technical understanding of music, you’ll take classes in business and economics that give you a foundation in business administration. With this background, you’ll be ready to excel in whatever aspect of music business you pursue, whether that's music retail, music marketing, artist management, music publishing, or record production.
