The music industry is transforming and this degree will teach you how and why. Designed to give you the skills, knowledge and contacts required for a successful career in the music and entertainment industry, on this degree, you’ll study unique, advanced modules co-delivered with prominent industry partners and gain hands-on experience in the field. You’ll also have access to exclusive training opportunities that will prepare you for your career. At London Met, we bring new skills and approaches to every aspect of the music business. Digital music marketing, live music, record operations and talent management are just some of the modules co-delivered in practical settings, while the study of music law, management, publishing and market analysis will equip you with the business skills you need to get ahead in the industry. Our industry partners and visiting professors will mentor your work in several modules and you may even gain exclusive access to Music Managers Forum (MMF) training. You’ll have the opportunity to set up live events at London music venues and learn how to develop and sign artists and songwriters.

We’ll teach you how to analyse music genres and develop skills to license music and new music services. You’ll also learn about new global music markets and there will be study trip options to back this up with experience abroad. Succeeding in the new music business is about advanced skills and industry access.
