Music Business Program

If you love music but prefer to be on the business side of things, this might be the major for you. WSU’s Music Business program will prepare you for a career in many fields of the ever-expanding music industry. 

The Music Business major is 84-85 credits, and includes a combination of courses in music, arts administration, and business. 

Our program is designed to provide students with:

  • a strong background in music
  • a knowledge of business principles
  • a broad understanding of the music industry

Some of our music-specific courses include core music curriculum, studio lessons, and ensemble performance opportunities. Students will also complete a music internship and independent studies, giving them real-world experience in an area of their choice. 

The business courses in this program focus on economics, finance, marketing, and the legal side of business. These classes will prepare you for the basics of industry work.
