The B.Mus. music industry program prepares students to be competent musicians, and to comprehend, understand and analyze the rapidly changing advances in the industry. Students study and discuss the implications of current trends as they become familiar with the realities of general business and the creative and legal practices of the music business. In classes and through guest lectures and mentoring by leading industry professionals, students learn about professional organizations and their role in the industry.
The program also provides students with unprecedented opportunities to continue their education and broaden their skills and portfolio with graduate degree programs. In partnership with the Whitman School of Management, Setnor now offers the MUI/MBA 5-year dual degree program where B.Mus. music industry students who qualify can stay a 5th year and achieve an MBA. For students who have an interest in arts administration and non-profit music management students can enter into the M.A. in Arts Leadership program. There are also graduate programs in music performance and an M.S. certification in music education.
