Loyola Remains One of the Top Music Business Schools in the Country
Billboard has named Loyola University New Orleans as one of the top music business schools in the country. This marks the third consecutive year that Loyola's School of Music and Theatre Professions has been given this honor.
Loyola University has made the cut for the 2023 list of Top Music Business schools by Billboard, maintaining its place among prestigious universities and music programs such as the Berklee College of Music, UCLA, and the Abbey Road Institute.
"This continued recognition is an incredible honor but really a testament to the work we've been doing for more than three decades in our acclaimed music industry program," said Kate Duncan, director of the School of Music and Theatre Professions and the Conrad N. Hilton Chair in Music Industry at Loyola, in a press release.
Coming off of the success of the Music Industry Studies program, Loyola University has created the Popular and Commercial Music degree, as well as the Hip Hop and R&B degree. The Hip Hop and R&B degree implemented at Loyola is unique to the university as it is the only program of its kind in the world.
Loyola University New Orleans is in the heart of the city, which is known for its music history and rich culture. This environment gives students ample opportunities for professional development and experience playing at festivals and the city's many events. All this, in addition to the college's songwriting camps and working with talented artists like Grammy-winning producer D'Mile and rapper and singer Benji of Spillage Village, qualify Loyola University as one of the top music business schools in the country.
