Delivered in conjunction with Sheffield University's Management School, the MA in Music Management programme offers core management theory together with higher-level options and 'live' programmes giving students valuable first-hand experience. The programme concludes with a detailed study of an aspect of Music Management of the student's choice. With an active and extensive music scene, Sheffield is an excellent location for the study of music management.
The MA in Music Management is a subset of the successful MSc Management (Creative and Cultural Industries) programme, run by the University of Sheffield´s Management School.

The performing arts, cultural industries, heritage and visual arts sectors are dynamic areas of development in Britain, fed by increasing leisure time and rising real incomes. They provide a focus for local communities, a valuable educational resource, and a significant contribution to the local and national economy, not least through a wide range of tourist attractions. Tourism is said to be the world´s fastest growing industry and is on a steady, long-term growth path.
The MA in Music Management is designed to give those wanting to work professionally in this field, competitive advantage, through both a sure grasp of theoretical knowledge and a taste of the practical experience required to succeed.


Course Content
The MA in Music Management is a one year programme, running from September to September. Teaching consists of an Introduction week and two 15-week semesters, from late September to the following June.
Students must take all modules offered in the first semester and the first three modules offered in the second semester. They may then select for further study during the second semester two of the five options listed. The programme concludes with a dissertation, on a subject of the student´s choice. The 15 credit Research Methods module is taught across the Autumn and Spring Semesters.
All the modules are applied specifically to the relevant sector under study. All 15 credit modules are taught in the Management School, alongside students from the MSc in Management (Creative and Cultural Industries), except that for 'Music Management Environments' which is taught in the Department of Music. The Dissertation is supervised by the Music Department.
