Executive Training

Music Business Innovation Lab: Transmedia Collaborations for Executives - The Music Business Program in partnership with Brazil's Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) International Affairs Division, offers a one-week, professional-level training lab in cross-cultural and transmedia innovation for music and media industry executives. The intensive program analyzes emerging business models and international markets for music and media--positioned at the intersection of several overlapping areas of industry. We examine existing and emergent strategies for designing hybrid business models to manage the dispersal of content across multiple platforms, including interactive websites, smartphone and tablet apps, social video games, music and video streaming services, live performances, and others on the horizon, such as virtual and augmented reality.
