Our courses are designed for people of all ages with a wide range of backgrounds with all levels of musical experience, from beginners to industry veterans.

MBI courses are designed to deliver practical, usable information, and are a great fit for:

  • musicians
  • composers
  • songwriters
  • college students
  • business managers
  • agents/managers
  • music supervisors
  • music attorneys

Each course clearly lists any prerequisites you'll need, including any prior classes or skills/experience you'll need to make the most of your online learning experience.

Our courses are specifically designed to deliver usable, current information and experience to students without all the red tape and high administrative costs of some other institutions. We know you have busy lives and careers, and while our institution does not offer dorms, frat houses and social events, we do offer streamlined courses delivering professional information, skills and experience delivered when, where, and how you want to study.


Music Business Institute online courses allow you to study what you want, when you want, at your own speed without the hassle and expense of traveling to a classroom to learn on someone else's schedule. Our courses focus on delivering practical knowledge and experience you can use now to build and enhance your career.

Today's busy careers and hectic personal/family lives can make attending live courses day after day, week after week difficult, and if you miss a session, making it up can be a big problem. With MBI online courses, you take control of your educational learning experience and can customize how, when and where you participate in the course to meet a demands of today's constantly changing schedules.

If you're the type of person who needs someone looking over your shoulder or imposing their schedule on you to motivate you to learn, then online learning may not be for you. But if you're someone who is motivated and interested in learning in a streamlined educational environment that focuses on skills and experience, not schedule and location, online learning may be a great fit for you.

Sure, it takes discipline and a commitment to learn online on your own schedule, but many believe the end result - a highly flexible and customizable learning experience - is worth it.
