As a member of the Music and Entertainment Business Association, you will help produce live shows and other entertainment events on campus by booking artists and venues and managing promotion, sponsorship, hospitality, stage set-up and more. 

The music and entertainment industry is one of largest and most diverse industries in the world. With your degree from Ferris, you will ready to establish yourself as a leader in the field.
