Undergrad Catalog 2010

Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) in Music Business

The Music Business (MBU) program is designed around the core fundamentals of modern business administration.  Music Business students complete the B.B.A. curriculum with a major in Music Business and an emphasis focused in either Music Industry or Music Production.  Because the MBU program is equivalent to a “double major” in business administration and music business, the MBU student is not required to complete a Minor area of study.  Upon competition, the degree awarded is the Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.)..
