The Business of Music minor at Peabody provides undergraduate students with an understanding of the structures within the music industry and equips them to pursue careers as entrepreneurial musicians, arts administrators, and industry professionals.

After completing an introductory Business of Music course, students take a customized curriculum with electives in three study areas: Accounting or Business Studies; Non-Profit/Arts Administration; and Communication/Marketing. Students may choose one additional elective from these study areas or an alternative course approved by the faculty. The electives may be taken at the Whiting School of Engineering (WSE), the Carey Business School, or the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. Students complete the minor with a capstone project.

Although students may begin taking coursework for a minor at their discretion, they may complete the paperwork to declare a minor only after successfully playing a 209 jury. Any minor must be declared before the start of a student’s last semester of study. Once the paperwork is completed in the Office of Academic Affairs, the Associate Dean will evaluate the student’s requirements and consult with pertinent faculty members before making a final decision whether to approve the minor course of study.
