Student Spotlight - Brianna Berger

The Music Business Entrepreneurship major at Judson will be a very beneficial addition to Judson University’s current offerings. It draws from two good programs that already exist and incorporates entrepreneurship into them. There are many new music artists trying to enter the market, and this program can provide students with the knowledge and experience to have an advantage in this area – whether they are focused on heading that direction themselves or assisting someone else.
