Course summary

This course is the final year BA top up following a relevant two-year FdA (Foundation Degree) or HND.

The Music Business degree courses have been very successful in developing and promoting motivated and ambitious individuals across all aspects of the music industry, including music producers, performers, artists, managers, A&R, music publishers, studio owners, tour production and entrepreneurs.

In this final BA year, you will extend and apply your music business knowledge in small classes and one-to-one tutorials from specialists with cutting-edge expertise in one of the most rapidly evolving and growing sectors of UK business.

Classes and project work in small groups in our own music business hub office run inside our extensive, world-class studio complex, providing a busy music ecosystem and work experience. The course is supplemented by a weekly series of lectures and workshops with prominent visiting music industry figures, including record labels, publishers, artist managers, music lawyers and performing artists across all genres, including many successful MET alumni.

Staff have strong industry connections, including contacts at Universal Music and many other important music companies - and crucially with ex-students working at Sony, Warner, managing artists such as Skepta, Mabel, working with artists, distribution, copyright, contracts, rights, digital music aggregation and key parts of the music industry.

Music Business students have full access to our outstanding sound studios, as well as an office dedicated to music industry projects. Students receive a digital copy of Music Week each week and can access a range of current industry books and publications - and further essential industry-related IT equipment and software in the music department and in our fully equipped libraries.

For Event Management, we have excellent relationships with a host of south coast venues, as well as our own theatre spaces on campus.
