Are you fascinated by the music industry, not as a performer, but as a business? As a Bandier Program major pursuing a degree in Recording and Allied Entertainment Industries, your multidisciplinary program encompasses the media, marketing, and entrepreneurship side of the music business, backed up by a strong foundation in the liberal arts.
The program was made possible by a gift from Martin Bandier, the chairman and CEO of Sony/ATV Music Publishing, who is a Syracuse University trustee.
