About Us


Pop Music is a driving force in the economic progress of cultural wealth. The Popakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg combines all relevant aspects of popular culture and creates synergies in order to maximize the creative and economic output of the music business.

After 50 years of pop music history, Germany offers an academic education in pop music for the first time, focusing on popular music and music business. Due to Mannheim, the secret capital of pop music, the academy is located in an ultimate surrounding that is characterized by a lively cultural scene, actively supported by institutions like the Musikpark Mannheim, a centre for innovative music industries.

The Popakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg is an academy that distinguishes itself from others throughout outstanding reputations for all aspects of the music business. This is supported by numerous projects ranging from European partnerships to the regional development and economic support for media businesses in the region of Baden-Wuerttemberg.
