Music Industry Administration

(January 1st, 2012) — Starting in Fall 2012 the Tseng College launches a new master's degree in Music Industry Administration. It will focus on the business of distributing, marketing and performing music.  CSUN's Mike Curb College of Arts, Media and Communication; College of Business and Economics; and the Tseng College collaborated to create the new master's degree program, the only one of its kind in the Western United States.  "It is the creative element and motivation by a passion for the music industry that separates this discipline from more traditional business fields," said Carey Christensen, assistant professor of music industry studies at CSUN. "You don't have to know how to play a musical instrument to learn how to succeed in the music business in this alternative to a traditional MBA degree."
