Mission Statement

The Music Business Journal, published at Berklee College of Music, is a student publication that serves as a forum for intellectual discussion and research into the various aspects of the music business. The goal is to inform and educate aspiring music professionals, connect them with the industry, and raise the academic level and interest inside and outside the Berklee Community.

A Brief History

The Music Business Journal was created by K. Min, a Berklee student, and Dr. Peter Alhadeff, Professor of Music Business/Management at Berklee.

Since its inaugural issue in March of 2005, the MBJ has advanced the understanding of the music business for Berklee and other college students, as well as industry professionals. Contributions are welcome, and publication is subject to editorial approval. A minimum of five issues are printed each year, i.e. at least two in fall, at least two in spring, and one during the summer.

  • Berklee College of Music was founded on the revolutionary principle that the best way to prepare students for careers in music was through the study and practice of contemporary music. For over half a century, the college has evolved constantly to reflect the state of the art of music and the music business. With over a dozen performance and non- performance majors, a diverse and talented student body representing over 70 countries, and a music industry “who’s who” of alumni, Berklee is the world’s premier learning lab for the music of today– and tomorrow.
