Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship & Cultural Leadership (JCECL)

The talented students emerging from the world renowned Jacobs School of Music certainly have opportunities in major orchestras or other national outlets; however, the School has expressed the need to educate music students on entrepreneurial principles as so many will be using their special talents “on their own,” creating two avenues to pursue: further development in the arts for the state; and business development in the music fields that receive little focus.

The Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship & Cultural Leadership is being developed for the near future. This program will offer students in the musical arts an opportunity to learn some of the business and entrepreneurial principles necessary to enhance their careers.
