„There is a special family atmosphere at Danube University Krems not only concerning exchanges between students, but also as we interact with lecturers. Students have opportunities to focus on specific areas of interest within the music business field – from global music management and general business planning to legal aspects applicable to music management.“
Irina Frenkel - graduate

„The students are working professionals, their interests practical rather than theoretical and their questions probing. I cover substantive material including US intellectual property law, as well as soft skills such negotiation, leadership, ethics, pitching, and marketing oneself. The students are outstanding in both areas and learn quickly, which is most gratifying for a teacher.“
