BIMM Dublin launches Spotify BA Music Business Scholarship


Third level music college BIMM Dublin has announced details of its Spotify BA Music Business Scholarship for the coming academic year 2020/2021.

The scholarship will offer one student a place on the college’s new three-year BA (Hons) Music Business undergraduate course, without having to pay for tuition, which Spotify is covering.

Says the details on the course:

The course is perfect for those involved in music who are thinking of launching their own record label, running their own music publishing company, setting up artist management, promoting events or with interest in design and branding. Original artists may also look to gain an in-depth knowledge of the music industry to steer their performance career with increased precision.  Since 2015, 86% of BIMM Institute Dublin graduates are working in the music and creative arts industries within six months of graduation, and 75% are finding work through a network established at BIMM Institute Dublin. 

BIMM counts Fontaines D.C., Ciara O’Connor (Backing Vocalist & Dancer for Dua Lipa), Joe Furlong (Bassist, James Vincent McMorrow), Aimee Mallon (Le Boom), ELM, Erica Cody, Jafaris, Craig Fitzgerald (The Academic), Wastefellow, The Murder Capital, Maria Somerville and AE Mak as graduates in recent years.

BIMM Institute Dublin says it will open in September while assuring it is adhering to all government and health authority guidance. You can read their guidelines here.
