This is an exciting time in the music industry. Everything about how music is recorded, produced, promoted, delivered and monetized is changing, seemingly on a weekly basis. These rapid changes demand that industry professionals possess a solid understanding of how the music industry fits into the larger entertainment industry. Success in the music industry also requires management and business skills. This includes an understanding of contracts and the legal issues regarding intellectual property; technological acumen; and the ability to innovate, integrate and adapt in an ever-evolving global industry.
