Mission Statement

At the Berklee Music Business Journal we provide in-depth analysis of industry trends, and follow their effects on both music and the world. As a beacon of truth, we aim to inform, inspire, and provoke discussion on an intellectual level within the Berklee community and beyond.

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. We aim to produce a minimum of five printed issues each year.

  • 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.
  • The Music Business Journal, at the Berklee College of Music, is housed and produced at the Music Business/Management Department
