Springing from Saint Joseph's College's deep roots in liberal arts, the Music-Business group major offers a rare opportunity to merge your musical talents with the kinds of business skills necessary for a career in the music business. It is a combination not available in many other places. And it includes the critical skills that are the heart of the business administration major, as well as personalized study with an acclaimed music faculty.

Why Music-Business at Saint Joseph's College?
Personal attention: From both business and music professors, you will receive the kind of personal attention and guidance in your studies and career search that is unmatched at larger institutions.
Broad-based skills designed for your future: Recruiters and alumni have made it clear they want graduates to be broadly skilled and prepared for a business world in constant flux. Your studies at SJC are designed with that kind of future in mind - to give you skills firms are clamoring for in college graduates. (In other words, you won't be forced into deep and narrow subjects you may not use as your interests change and career evolves.)
Great flexibility: The music faculty has a well-deserved reputation for working closely with individual students to tailor their instrumental and vocal training.
Hands-on business management: You'll pass through BUS 351 - The Crucible in your junior year and test your developing business skills by competing in a sophisticated competition with classmates.
Strong networking: An extensive alumni network of both business and music majors means you are easily connected to professionals. Junior and seniors attend alumni receptions in Indianapolis and Chicago specifically designed to work on networking skills.
