The Music Enterprise Certificate is a program enhancement option for undergraduate and graduate music major students designed to provide foundational understanding and experiences in establishing, managing, promoting, and otherwise successfully operating business enterprises in the music industry. The intent of the certificate is not to provide comprehensive training in all non-performance aspects of the music business, but rather, to allow students to explore how to combine their own musical interests and priorities with the tools and concepts necessary to function creatively in the music industry of today, while also preparing to be adaptable for the changing landscape of music production and consumption in the future. Non-music major students may pursue the Music Enterprise Certificate by permission of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in Music.

Music Majors: Graduate students in good standing (non-probationary) may declare for the Music Enterprise Certificate at any time during their course of study. There are no admission requirements for music majors.

Non-Music Majors: Non-music graduate students in good standing (non-probationary) who wish to be admitted to the Certificate program must interview with the Director of the Program who will determine whether the student has the necessary background.

12 credits are required to complete the certificate.
