Billboard has named Delta State University’s Entertainment Industries Studies program one of the top music business schools in America.
The list, which appeared in the October 11 issue of the magazine, has Delta State alongside other renowned programs such as Abbey Road Institute, Belmont University’s Mike Curb College of Entertainment, and Middle Tennessee University.
Here’s what the staff at Billboard wrote:
“Students in Delta State’s Entertainment Industry Studies program can explore a range of skill-building courses from audio engineering technology to entertainment industry entrepreneurship. An education partner with Grammy Museum Mississippi and an Avid Learning partner, the school is situated in the heart of the Mississippi Delta and offers a suite of selection for those seeking real-world knowledge of concepts, skills, and practices in the entertainment sector, including an entrepreneurship class that caters to students seeking a nonperforming role in the music business.”
Delta State’s Entertainment Industries Studies program, also known as the Delta Music Institute, is intended to develop a broad range of skills in audio engineering technology and entertainment industry entrepreneurship, providing students with a foundational base of knowledge for working in various entertainment industry careers. The program promises that alumni will be prepared for the technical, business, and legal issues that confront the practicing entertainment industry in not only today’s world but the future.
“It is an honor for our program to be included in this list for the first time,” Richard Tremmell, the program’s chair, said. “We have a great team of faculty and staff who bring a diverse body of knowledge into our classrooms to prepare our students for real-world experiences.”
