About the Frost School's Music Business and Entertainment Industries Program
In today’s fast changing, multi-billion dollar international music and entertainment industries, there are more record labels, publishers, media companies, distributors, retailers, and product manufacturers actively promoting the sale and use of music than ever before. As the market for music shifts away from physical products and traditional methods to digital online and mobile, a greater number of competent, highly-skilled executives and entrepreneurs will be needed to meet the specialized demands of the new music industry. Since 1964, the Music Business and Entertainment Industries (MBEI) program has been at the forefront of music business education. The MBEI program has been carefully designed to prepare qualified music business students for these emerging opportunities. Click here for more information.
