About SAE Chicago Music Business Program
The Music Business Program is a dynamic, intensive program designed to prepare students for a career in the music industry in a short amount of time. This course will help artists, producers, and performers understand how business partners with creativity. Classes explore the way projects are pitched, sold, copyrighted, produced, marketed, and delivered. Students have previously hosted shows at Reggie’s; showcased live sets from top EDM DJs, screenings from leading filmmakers, and producers inside two CTA train cars; and hosted concerts on Double Decker buses traveling through downtown Chicago.
