SUNY Oneonta is one of 21 colleges and universities featured in Billboard magazine’s 2019 list of “Top Music Business Schools.” The college’s Music Industry program is known for giving students uncommon opportunities and hands-on experience.

For example:

  • More than 20 students took part in a four-hour backstage tour of the Times Union Center in Albany, N.Y., last December that included a conversation with Dave Matthews before his band performed at the venue.
  • Each year, more than a dozen students get an inside look at the latest music gear at the NAMM Show in Los Angeles.
  • The Music For Life freshman Living Learning Community offers networking opportunities for first-year students interested in music
  • A new course, Digital Music and Beat Production, allows students to create a recorded portfolio of tracks meeting contemporary standards in the school’s studio.
