WHAT TO EXPECT

All killer. No filler. BIMM’s music business courses are structured to help you develop into an industry professional. Every step of the way, you’ll be guided by our expert tutors – all current and respected figures with years of expertise to pass on. But that doesn’t mean you can’t go off the map, with a varied curriculum designed to prep’ your skill-set for employment.

For students looking to break into the music business, nothing beats hands-on experience in the field. At BIMM, you’ll learn your craft at the sharp end. Manage real-world projects that test your acumen and insight. Collaborate with your peers and industry contacts. Harness our cutting-edge facilities as you sharpen your management and business chops. Match those experiences with tailored tuition in key business areas like Event Promotion and Tour Management, Artist Development and Management, Marketing and Media, Music Publishing and Cultural Perspectives.

Our courses are both academic and rooted in the real world, providing the perfect balance between practical and technical skills, theory and analysis. Beyond the nuts-and-bolts of the business, you’ll be exploring and developing potential career pathways through research and professional projects, while learning the vital industry skills that employers will call for.

You’ll want to plug into one-of-a-kind networking opportunities and collaborate with like-minded movers and shakers during your time on the course. And that couldn’t be easier, with access to the BIMM Connect service letting you hook up fast with the student bands and songwriters who need your management skills, and the event promoters and press agents who can publicise the acts on your roster.

One size doesn’t fit all – so BIMM’s music business course puts you in control, tailoring the content to hit your own personal targets. Dive into your core studies, but don’t forget to max out your skill-set with our five-week, mid-term BIMM Extra mini modules, which include topics as varied as Photoshop and Video Editing, Mindfulness Techniques, Essay Writing Skills, Entrepreneurship – and more.

Masterclasses

At BIMM, you’ll learn from the best. Alongside our respected tutors, BIMM’s regular masterclasses get you up close and personal with industry figures at the top of the tree. Our world-renowned guests are here to share their hard-won advice, offer up their brains for picking, give you the career hacks you won’t find in any textbook and guide you around the pitfalls.

What Our Students Say

Anna Dungal : BIMM Berlin

“Having some experience in the music industry already, I really wanted to expand on that and get a world recognised qualification in the area. I love Berlin and so when I heard of BIMM Berlin it was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to get a hands-on course that offered a lot of job opportunities; I love that most of my tutors have jobs that I look up to with companies, labels, and festivals that I know and admire. So I’m actually learning from real life people and that could translate into job opportunities and connections for my future.”
