News: 3rd October 2013 by Louise Dodgson under Music Training & Careers

Music Business School has announced 2014 commencement dates for its industry recognised Managing A Music Business Enterprise (MMBE) course. They are Wednesday 22nd January, Wednesday 14th May, and Wednesday 10th September. Applications for the January 2014 intake are now open.
2014 will be the London based business school’s fourth year of equipping young entrepreneurs with the essential information they need to get their music businesses up-and-running or increase their prospects for employment via formal training. It will be the second year that the school has independently offered the MMBE qualification having gained accreditation to do so during 2013.
Since its inception, over 100 students have successfully undertaken study of the new MMBE qualification at Music Business School. Many of the graduating students have moved quickly from study into full-time work within existing music companies or successfully started their own music business enterprises.
In 2014 the course will continue in its usual one day per week format, with classes taught over a 16 week period. The course will also continue its popular guest speaker programme which brings top level, working music business executives into face-to-face discussions with students about how to build and grow their music businesses.  Presentations from trade organisations such as the PPL and PRS for Music, the MMF, the MU, and AIM, compliment presentations showcasing the latest innovations in digital music platforms from vendors such as Hootsuite, Music Glue, BandApp, and Soundcloud. They combine to give students essential information in addition to meeting leading players from across the music industry.
Music Business School eBook Series Launched
Music Business School has also published the first in a series of eBooks aimed at young music business entrepreneurs. The school’s aim is to publish 3 eBooks each year offering them free, via its website. 
The first title, aimed at those taking their first steps in the music business is available now. Titled 4 Fast Track Ideas to Kick Start Your Music Business, it offers ideas on Developing Contacts in the Music Business, Getting Your Music on Radio plus a recommended reading list of essential music business books used at Music Business School.
"Our eBook strategy is a great way for us to contribute to the music business community and extend the Music Business School brand," says Music Business School owner and MMBE course leader Steve Melhuish. "We genuinely hope they will be a valuable asset for young music business owners who are starting out and need ready access to the kind of insight we can provide. The information in the eBook is based on what we teach in the course with contributions by a few of the music business executives who participate in our guest presenter programme also included."
