New minor: Entrepreneurship in the Music Industry


The College of Business and School of Music partner to launch new minor 

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Entrepreneurship Minor in the Music Industry will enhance a music graduate’s degree by adding entrepreneurial business skills to the curriculum.

Music students don’t always recognize the full spectrum of jobs and careers available to them once they graduate. With training to develop an entrepreneurship mindset, these students can better understand how to earn a living doing what they love. The Music Entrepreneurship Minor, available beginning Fall 2022, will prepare these graduates to become job creators and use their own toolset to personalize their careers in the music industry and beyond.

The 18-hour minor program includes 12 hours of entrepreneurship instruction in the UofL College of Business, covering topics in creativity, innovation, the entrepreneurial process, and venture planning and management, plus 6 hours of music industry instruction in the School of Music.

This new entrepreneurship minor model can also be added to many other B.A. degrees across the University to enhance a student’s business skill set and career.
