A bachelor’s degree is an increasingly important degree for anyone to have. Employers often look for candidates who have completed higher education at this level. Even if you’re applying for a job that doesn’t directly correlate with your major, a bachelor’s degree alone can often make you a strong candidate.

What is a BA in Music Business? With this degree, students learn how to successfully manage a musician or music group. They can also learn how to effectively manage themselves if they are independent musicians who are just starting out in the industry. Music business students take courses related to copyright laws, publicity, marketing and distribution. Many programs allow students to get their feet wet in the industry even during their time as students. This sets them up for success when they graduate and take on clients of their own.

Obtaining a bachelor’s degree in music business provides many benefits. Students learn skills that can help them in all areas of professional life, such as how to be a leader, manage finances and work well with others. Graduates may also have an edge over applicants without undergraduate degrees, even if they don’t end up pursuing music business.

The cost of a degree in music business varies by institution. If you’re considering pursuing this major, it is best to speak with the financial aid department of the school you’re interested in to make the most informed decision.

There are many career opportunities for those who graduate with a music business degree. Common careers are public relations, being sales and distribution representative, and artist management. You can also be a tour manager, a music journalist or a social media marketer, among other career options. Whether or not you pursue music business upon graduation, you’ll have valuable skills related to self-determination and strong communication.

Many schools offer both online and in-person degree programs for music business. You can also select an institution outside of your home country. To learn more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
