Music and Business Management with a year abroad

This programme includes performance, composition and musicology, embracing musical styles and traditions from western classical music to commercial music, jazz and pop. We also offer options in music business, music therapy and community music. The year abroad will allow you to experience an entirely new culture and to learn or develop another language. Our BA Music and Management degree develops your understanding of key management functions in addition to a musical education, and gives you the opportunity to apply skills such as problem-solving, teamwork, numeracy and self-management. You will take a core programme of management sciences in years one and two, with a free choice of music options, and can choose from a wide range of options in both subjects in year three. You may take 25 per cent of your programme in an alternative subject. The year abroad will give you the opportunity to study for an additional academic year at a university in another part of the world. Destinations include Europe, Asia and North America. We are first in the UK for music research (REF, 2014). Our flexible course offers an innovative range of options across performance, composition, music history and criticism, ethnomusicology, music technology, music therapy and the music profession. We also offer opportunities for all students to work in professional environments and live music venues, including Turner Sims, famous for its professional concert series.
