Entertainment Network Society
Music Publishing Society
My plans are joining these clubs because I know it will help me build my career and also help build my connections by meeting other students.
BMI (Broadcast Music, Inc)
Alliance for Women in Media
EIC (Entertainment Industries Council)
My plans are joining these organizations because it will help me get more involved in the industry and hopefully help people who are interested in the entertainment field.
I will expand my PLN by following Universal Music Group because I want to work for that company after I graduate. Most of my favorite artists work for that record company. I will also be following Taxi.com for useful information about the music industry and career opportunities. The person I want to follow in the industry is P. Diddy because he is a music mogul and entrepreneur. He motivates me to be successful in the music industry.
During my Mastery Journey I want to use these strategies to help me get through the Entertainment Business Master’s degree program and beyond that. My goal is to get a better understanding of this program, so I can become more diverse in my career field.
