Music industry degree from a top U.S. university is now up for grabs, and it’s the latest in a long line of major brands looking to gain access to the industry’s most sought-after talent.
The 2018 edition of the University of Chicago’s Music Industry Directory (MICD) is one of the most prestigious in the country, and the new edition has been compiled with the help of a top-notch faculty.
The MICD was founded by the U.K.-based Association of Music Education and Research (AMER), and the rankings reflect the diversity of the music industry, with the top 10 positions going to a mix of majors, minors, and programs in the field.
The MICD’s 2018 edition has several new features, including:* It lists the top 100 music industry majors in the United States, Canada, and Europe, and their rank in the latest survey conducted by PitchBook, which aggregates data from nearly 1,500 music industry professionals.* It’s also the only rankings for the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, Australia, and Singapore, as well as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt, and India.* The rankings reflect graduates from all 30 major U.I. and postgraduate education programs across the U and U.A.M. degrees.
