Throughout the years I’ve been writing about music, I’ve looked into the schools offering music business degrees a number of times, and it’s no shock Berklee always ends up on top as the option that, overall, deserves to be regarded as No. 1.
In addition to offering degrees in literally dozens of different styles of music, Berklee also caters to those who want to work in the industry, but who don’t aim to do so as actual musicians. The Bachelor of Music in Music Business/Management is the best bet for anyone who wants to be in the business, and there are plenty of minors you can add on, whether you’re studying proper music or not.
Just a few extra classes can give you a minor in everything from Creative Entrepreneurship to Philosophy (which these days can mean anything).
There are a number of great institutions offering music business degrees but none can match the status of Berklee, which remains the most highly-regarded brand in this space.
