Training to Become a Valued Promotion Specialist or Artist Manager Professional

Creative Thinkers and Aspiring Entrepreneurs Wanted

If your goal is to work in music management, event management and/or other areas of media business, you owe it to yourself to explore the Entertainment & Media Business program at The Media Institute.


What is Entertainment & Media Business?

Entertainment & Media Business is the collision of music, video, film, Internet and Web, touring and events, design, games, sports, and genres that have only been imagined. It is the business of sound and vision and how to make a living working with your passion. As Andy Warhol famously stated "Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art."


Career Opportunities


Individuals with Music Management Degrees work in talent management, event promotion and other management careers in the media business, including:


  • Promotion Specialist
  • Studio Manager
  • Music Supervisor
  • Casting Assistant
  • Marketing Specialist

And much more!


These positions are found in a variety of sectors within the entertainment and media industry. Opportunities are available in the traditional avenues including studios, labels, music, film, video, internet and web, games, and sports.
