This program will give students a foundational overview of how the music business has been transformed by decades of technological and business innovation. Innovation led to music sampling and musical effects in hip-hop. The rise of music videos created a global, multicultural market for recorded music. Digitization created a renaissance for the industry and would later disrupt it entirely – first with Napster and then with iTunes.
Today, streaming services like Spotify, Internet-connected devices, digital and mobile ticketing, and stadium technologies are radically changing the ways audiences consume and pay for music and music-based experiences. This ongoing evolution continues to shape the business – impacting labels, artists, live event promoters and others pursuing careers in music. And future successful careers will depend on understanding business models, management principles, and, techniques for working and leading in an innovative music industry.
