The Bandier Program is now located in Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. Beginning in Fall 2018, new Bandier students will be admitted to the Newhouse School. Prospective students should contact the Newhouse School for more information about the program or to apply.
The multidisciplinary Bandier Program includes an understanding of the business of music, media, marketing, and entrepreneurship with a strong liberal arts background. The program was made possible through a generous gift from Syracuse University Trustee and Sony/ATV Music Publishing Chairman and CEO Martin Bandier ’62.
Students in the Bandier Program earn a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree in recording and allied entertainment industries. The program does not require an audition for admission. Applicants with traditional music training and a performance background should also consider the Setnor School of Music's excellent music industry program, which leads to a bachelor of music (B.M.) degree and includes music business and applied music study. It focuses on fine tuning both musical and business capabilities. An audition is required for admission.
