Special Learning Opportunities
Berklee Study Abroad
Berklee’s exclusive study abroad program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to study at our international campus in Valencia, Spain. Students in Valencia will experience the rich culture of the Mediterranean and prepare to face the unique challenges in the global music industry.
Courses are offered from across the Berklee curriculum so that students from all majors may find the classes they need to meet their graduation requirements. Additionally, students can elect to pursue a minor in music technology, a program available only in Valencia.
All students at the Valencia campus have the opportunity to get hands-on experience in state-of-the-art recording studios and technology labs. The Valencia experience also offers international exposure through a variety of concerts at the Palau de les Arts and in other venues throughout the local community. Many students have become regular performers at renowned clubs in Valencia and other cities in Spain.
MBA Opportunity with Suffolk University
Students who successfully complete the Music Business/ Management program and earn a Bachelor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music may apply for acceptance to the Suffolk University Master of Business Administration (MBA) program for Berklee graduates.
Through a special arrangement, you may receive credit for your Berklee course work in the music business/management major towards an MBA from Suffolk. As much as a semester of the four-semester Suffolk program is eligible for course waiver consideration, saving you considerable time and cost in earning this valuable degree.
Acceptance to the MBA program and course waiver considerations are based on (1) the achievement of a 3.00 GPA or above, (2) a minimum grade of B in required courses, (3) a GMAT score of at least 450, and (4) any additional requirements necessary for admission to Suffolk University.
Berklee students may waive the GMAT/GRE requirement if they are a second semester senior in the Music Business/Management program with at least a cumulative GPA of 3.3 (recent graduates also considered).
This “fast track” program is intended to support your chosen career path in the music industry—whether entrepreneurial, marketing, or management—and put you in the job market as well prepared and quickly as possible.
For more information, contact Berklee's Music Business/ Management Department or the Ofﬁce of Graduate Admissions at Suffolk University, or visit the Suffolk University website. Suffolk University also holds information sessions several times during the year. You may contact the Suffolk Graduate Admissions Office at 617-573-8302.
