Music Business & Innovation Route

“My experience at London Metropolitan University has been a turning point in my career” Dr David Rojas Rodríguez, a Visiting Researcher at the University, completed his International PhD in Music Management with the highest qualification in Spain. To find out when teaching for this degree will begin, as well as welcome week and any induction activities, view our academic term dates. If you will be applying direct to the University you are advised to apply as early as possible as we will only be able to consider your application if there are places available on the course. Please note, you will still be required to attend some teaching elements of your course in person and therefore the course cannot be delivered fully remotely.

Given the high number of publications in these fields the core texts will be chosen for their ability to provide connections and synthesis and/or disciplinary distinction, especially when highlighting methodological differences. As noted the aim is to provide a relatively unified and holistic introduction to community music in theory and practice. The module examines music industry management structures, the relationships to artists and the negotiation and representation skills required within the music industry. The historic development of the manager’s position within the music industry will also be explored. Creative Studio 2 explores planning, organising, promoting and executing a live event.

You can find out also about the support we offer to help you adjust to university life. Graduates from Brighton media courses have gone into work in fields including marketing, PR, social media and production, and work for organisations including the BBC, Channel 4, Ricochet, Universal Pictures, EMI and Vogue. In the third year you will undertake a live project during which you will research, plan, execute and evaluate a real-world music industries project in partnership with an external organisation. During the second year of study you will complete a professional work placement in a media-related organisation.

On this module you will develop a sense of commercial awareness, including key entrepreneurial skills and knowledge required to engage with innovation in the creative and digital industries. You will work as a part of a team to recognise trends and opportunities and then develop your ideas into a business plan. You will reflect on your ideas, considering issues around collaboration, innovation, sustainability and intellectual property. You’ll be encouraged to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and will be inspired by ideas, techniques and skills which help you create and develop early-stage ventures, leading all the way to enterprise growth. By working in teams on complex, real-life business problems and challenges, you’ll learn to develop business plans, generate ideas, recognise innovation, secure funding and analyse your competitors.

That’s why we’re the only university in the UK to offerfreeaccess to such a diverse and exciting range of activities through our SU – all to enrich your university experience. Lara owns her own music events, marketing and diversity consultancy, and is part of the team behind the International Live Music Conference which welcomed singer/songwriter Dua Lipa as a guest speaker.
