Do you want to create music media content, plan, promote and manage live music events, create your own music enterprise, develop project management skills, understand music promotion and PR, or have an interest in music as relating to wider creative and cultural industries? Then our BA (Hons) Music Business degree is the ideal course for you. We will support you in developing innovative and creative entrepreneurial skills and approaches needed not just to work in, but to shape the exciting and dynamic, multi-platform music industries. Studying in our industry-standard media centre in the heart of Birmingham, you will be taught in a friendly, supportive learning community, by an academic team of music business professionals and researchers who have industry experience. You will benefit from cutting-edge knowledge and research from our active popular music and music industries research community, who not only produce internationally recognised research and publications, but also contribute their expertise on the course. Professional Placement Year This course offers an optional professional placement year. This allows you to spend a whole year with an employer, following successful completion of your second year, and is a great way to find out more about your chosen career. Some students even return to the same employers after completing their studies. If you choose to pursue a placement year, you will need to find a suitable placement to complement your chosen area of study. You will be able to draw on the University’s extensive network of local, regional, and national employers, and the support of our Careers teams. If you are able to secure a placement, you can request to be transferred to the placement version of the course. Please note that fees are payable during your placement year, equivalent to 20% of the total full-time course fee for that year.
