If so, the (Hons) Music Business Management with Foundation Year programme from London College of Creative Media might be for you!


On our (Hons) Music Business Management with Foundation Year degree from London College of Creative Media you will learn from industry professionals and have the opportunity to put your ideas and new skills into practice with work placements or entrepreneurial project based modules in your third year.

Educational Opportunity

Our Foundation in Music Business (Year 0) is designed for students who haven’t studied any of the core subject areas previously and want to acquire or reinforce the skills required for success at undergraduate level or entry-level work in the entertainment sector.

The foundation year will build upon your passion and experience of music as a fan or hobbyist and give you the necessary skills and knowledge to prepare you for study at Level 4. You will learn essential business, academic and digital skills that will set you up for both your future studies and your professional career.

You will develop the necessary written and online communication skills to engage, persuade and convince others of the merits of your ideas and music projects.

As you develop an active curiosity and fluency in the terminology and principles of business, media and communications, you will be ready to make the most of the rest of your studies and for the realities of work in the industry.
