William Paterson University is the only college in New Jersey—and one of very few in the U.S.—that offers a bachelor of music degree in music management. The program focuses on the multifaceted recording industry and offers music management coursework in music publishing, recording, production, public relations, law and ethics, and personal management.
The University also offers a master of music degree in music management, as well as an MB. in music management, which is the only MBA of its kind in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area and one of the first in the nation. The program builds upon William Paterson’s close proximity to New York and international reputation for music education.
