The Music Industry Career Development University Partnership (MIC’D UP) works with local artist management agencies and colleges/universities to connect aspiring music industry professionals with real-world experiences through a yearlong, paid fellowship. With a deep history of music, there is no better city in the world to learn the ins and outs of the industry.
Program goals include:
- Music sector graduates gain access to critical entry-level experience opportunities
- Local management companies benefit from available labor, and the opportunity to grow artist portfolios
- Local management companies gain the capacity to diversify artist portfolios and attract artists from outside our immediate market
- Artists have more access to local representation, creating a higher probability of long-term, sustained management
