Majoring in Music Business prepares students to enter today’s music industry and to pursue a career opportunity where music and business intersect.

The Music Business Administration major is offered through the Music Department of the College of Arts and Letters in collaboration with the College of Business and Organizational Leadership. The degree is primarily administered by the Music Department, with student advising overseen by the Music Department. Students work closely with faculty mentors in the College of Business and Organizational Leadership for the business portion of the degree. The major seeks to serve those students who are interested in music but seek a music degree with career application beyond that of performing or education. The degree allows students to gain a foundational knowledge base, which can be applied in a variety of occupations, and upon graduation they may pursue employment within the music industry and various arts organizations. The
major is comprised of existing courses in the music and business areas.
