Brooklyn Park, November 3, 2021 – Hennepin Technical College (HTC) is launching a new Music Business and Entrepreneurship associate of applied science degree, beginning spring semester of 2022. Students learn about the music industry as well as small business principals including accounting, marketing and sales.

“The Twin Cities is known for its diverse music scene and with our new program, students will be prepared to succeed in this exciting and competitive industry,” said Mark Johnson, academic dean, HTC. “For every person who is on stage performing, there are dozens of professionals who work behind the scenes. In addition, many artists are seeking to increase their business acumen. With this HTC program, students may pursue their individual career goals.”

To ensure the program is preparing students with an in-demand skillset, music business professionals provide input on the curriculum. In keeping with its tradition of providing real-world learning opportunities, HTC plans to create music industry internships for Music Business and Entrepreneur students.

Earning an associate in applied science degree requires two years. For those who prefer a fast-track, students may earn a certificate or diploma. The diploma may be completed in as few as eight months.

The Music Business and Entrepreneurship program is now enrolling students for spring term which beings January 10. HTC’s tuition is among the lowest in Minnesota State. Scholarships and financial aid are also available.
