Program Description

Short Course in Music Management

European School of Economics

The ESE Professional Programme in Music Management was designed as a means of providing students with a real working structure to guide them in this innately formless and rapidly evolving field. The Music Management course has been developed to meet the needs of students who wish to pursue a business and management career in the music industry.

A series of lectures, seminars and workshops with both regular and visiting industry specialists introduces candidates to the most significant aspects of the music business, including contract law, intellectual copyright, artist management and the recording industry. Success in the contemporary world of music is increasingly dependent upon business know-how. Assessment for the programme is usually through a group project and presentation.

Along the course, you will learn the fundaments of Music Business and will accomplish a solid foundation upon which you may grow in any direction. Once there, the course will help you choose your area of interest and will provide you with the proper tools to specialize.

But, most important, this course is about who you are, what you truly want and how to achieve it. In short, it is about creating, facing and fulfilling your dream. Because, both, the film industry and yourself can be rightly seen as that: factories of dreams.
And this course is about helping these factories work for good.
