Music Business

Bachelor of Arts

Music is passion - but it’s also strategy, innovation and change. A lot of people with a passion for music want to belong to the movers and shakers rather than on stage. That’s why the accredited B.A. in Music Business teaches not only the foundations of business but also specific skills for the music industry and the newest developments in the digital world. A hallmark of our programme is its practical orientation, especially manifested in our so-called project workshop.

Our goal is to educate a new generation of creative thinkers and innovative music managers who will lead the music industry into a new age.
