ACCREDITATION Can you tell me more about the Georgetown University and its McDonough School of Business? Established in 1789, Georgetown is the nation's oldest Catholic and Jesuit university. Georgetown was founded on the Jesuit principles of equality, respect, and cura personalis, or education of the whole person, and those same values define the school today. Georgetown’s interdisciplinary approach to global business and international politics originated with the trade and diplomacy studies programs pioneered by the School of Foreign Service in the early part of the twentieth century. At a time when business schools concentrated almost exclusively on domestic commerce, Georgetown realized that the world of business was becoming increasingly global. From its beginning, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business has continually strengthened its innovative approach to executive education. More than a decade ago, the school introduced international residencies and integrative courses as key components of its Executive MBA programs. Today, the McDonough School of Business is known worldwide for its strengths in strategy, international business, global logistics, and finance The McDonough School of Business has been ranked No. 3 in the United States and No. 17 worldwide for its Executive Education Customised Programs by the Financial Times in 2014. The Georgetown McDonough Executive Education was also named No. 1 in the US for its international programs. International business school surveys have ranked the university ahead of several respected competitors including Harvard, INSEAD, Wharton, University of Oxford: Säid, Kellogg, and MIT.

Music Business Program

Recording Connection Audio School
Campus Full time September 2017 United Kingdom Plymouth Manchester Belfast Exeter Sheffield USA Los Angeles Newcastle upon Tyne Derry Ipswich Stoke Birmingham Northampton Cardiff Leeds Aberdeen Brighton Norwich Swansea Leicester Dundee Bristol Nottingham Ireland Cork Liverpool Edinburgh Cambridge Oxford London Glasgow Cheltenham + 30 more

If you’re going to be successful as a record executive, label owner or band manager, you really need to be smart and deliberate regarding your choice of music school. There are many options out there, but many schools charge far too much money and don’t offer any real connection to the music industry itself. [+]

THE RECORDING CONNECTION MUSIC BUSINESS PROGRAM: AVAILABLE IN ALL 50 STATES AND CANADA. With hundreds of locations across the U.S., Canada, Australia and theU.K., the Recording Connection has helped thousands of students find their way in to rewarding music industry careers by placing them as working apprentices (externs) in actual recording studios. Each student is paired with a mentor, a successful working producer/engineer with years of experience and real album credits. We partner with hundreds of music professionals across the globe, many of whom work with Platinum-selling and Grammy-winning artists, to ensure that our students are receiving the best guidance, education and opportunities possible. The Recording Connection's Music Business Program is now enrolling! Are you looking for an exciting, rewarding career as a record executive, music mogul, band manager or other music industry professional? 
Do you have a desire to find fresh, new, talented bands and artists and help them reach a wider audience? Do you wish you had the connections and resources to do so?
 Are you perhaps already managing a few bands and artists but feel you need more industry connections to take it to the professional level? 
Do you have a drive and passion to find the next world music superstar and watch the world sing their songs? 
Do you dream of becoming the next Quincy Jones, David Geffen, Jimmy Iovine or Sam Phillips? 
 Do you have the work ethic and commitment to see these dreams succeed, if only you had the right opportunity? IF YOU ANSWERED YES TO ANY/ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS, THEN IT’S TIME TO CONSIDER YOUR NEXT STEPS VERY CAREFULLY. ARE YOU READY TO TAKE ACTION TO TURN YOUR DREAMS INTO REALITY? DO YOU HAVE THE COURAGE TO MAKE THE TOUGH DECISIONS TO HELP YOU GET THERE? Straight Talk About Your Music Industry Career: If you’re going to be successful as a record executive, label owner or band manager, you really need to be smart and deliberate regarding your choice of music school. There are many options out there, but many schools charge far too much money and don’t offer any real connection to the music industry itself. By choosing one of these schools, you run the risk of taking on career-crushing amounts of student debt for little or no return on your investment. And for someone trying to make it in the music business, that can halt your career before it ever starts. Don’t be that guy or girl. Don’t make the mistake of spending $25,000, $50,000 or $100,000 for a music school education that offers no real path to your future, and don’t make the even more serious mistake of taking on that kind of debt. Let’s be clear: your key to breaking into the music business doesn’t lie in a classroom with a bunch of other students, nor does it lie in some sort of online program that offers you no real feedback. Your path to success lies in the music industry itself—with the people who are actually DOING the work, who can show you the ropes and help you make your own connections. The Recording Connection offers this opportunity with our unique music business training program. Instead of placing you in an overpriced classroom, we place you as a working apprentice (extern) with a real music industry professional who is doing the job you want to be doing. As you follow a structured course curriculum, you’ll gain lots of real-world experience as you work alongside your mentor, and you’ll learn how to make the connections you need in order to succeed (and trust us—success in this business is ALL about connections). Best of all, you’ll gain this experience, knowledge and insider access for a FRACTION of what other music schools charge, so you can graduate with little or no debt and get on with your career. The music industry is a highly competitive field, and it’s the smart ones, the ones willing to think outside the box, who are the ones who rise to the top. For you, that begins with making choices about your education that will actually help your career without crushing you with debt. If you’re serious about beating out the competition to become a successful record executive or band manager, the Recording Connection is here to help! [-]
