MBA Concentration in Music Management
The MBA in music management concentration provides advanced education in the areas of music business, music management, entrepreneurship and entertainment law. Using our proximity to New York City, we are able to capitalize on our industry connections to offer the highest level of study. Consequently, the graduate student is immersed in the industry's environment while fostering a clear understanding of the role and needs of the individual.
The program offerings have an international scope and are taught by industry leaders as well as full time faculty. The completion of an internship is a crucial aspect of the learning curve. Although there are a variety of positions in an astounding number of fields, the objectives of this program are to introduce you to the multi-faced industry, guide you toward a career path, and offer the best opportunity to succeed. The goal of our Master of Business Administration program is to prepare our students for roles as effective organizational contributors in an increasingly diversified and competitive business environment.
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program features a cross-functional pedagogical approach. As such, textural components embodied within the business environment are interwoven throughout the curriculum. These components, or perspectives, include but are not limited to ethical, political, regulatory and social influences on organizations. An emphasis is placed on the acquisition of and/or refinement of communication skills, quantitative analysis, and technological applications within the context of business. Areas of core competency are emphasized in the eighteen lower core credit hours: these areas include financial reporting, analysis and markets, domestic and global economic environments of organizations, management information systems, and human behavior in organizations. The upper core courses (either 15 credit hours or 12 credit hours depending on your choice of concentration) focus on the integration of the lower core areas with the application of cross-functional approaches into organizational issues.
The MBA curriculum also offers a broad range of elective courses in each of the schools’ four departments: Accounting and Law; Economics, Finance, and Global Business; Marketing and Management Sciences, and Professional Sales. The program’s rigorous coursework requires a familiarity with requisite quantitative and technological concepts. Upon enrollment, students are encouraged to take screening examinations in 1) quantitative analysis and 2) technology, and are advised on taking introductory courses in those areas if necessary. The Cotsakos College of Business has received accreditation from AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
