Students who complete the related field will further develop their entrepreneurial skills and music business experience. While admission in the related field is limited and competitive, music entrepreneurship courses are open to all students who meet the relevant prerequisites.

Qualifications

  • Successful completion of the MUCE-5000 (The Musical Entrepreneur) or equivalent.
