Bachelor of Music Combined With Business
- Bachelor of Music with Elective Studies in Business
The BMOB, or Bachelor of Music Combined with Business program, attracts some of Stetson's best students. There are two tracks: One is a traditional four-year degree; the other is a rigorous track that leads you to a fifth year at Stetson, where you complete your master’s degree in our master of business administration program. So, that's a music performance degree and an MBA in a total of five years. It is a degree option that speaks for itself in today's competitive world.
Why Bachelor of Music Combined With Business at Stetson University?
As a student in the BMOB program, you get to enjoy all the School of Music has to offer:
- The singers participate in choirs and voice lessons, the operas or musical theater productions.
- The instrumentalists take private lessons from expert faculty while playing in band, orchestra, jazz band or any number of chamber or specialized smaller ensembles.
- Conducting, music technology, career skills and more are standard courses taken by all music majors.
You even complete a senior recital with guidance from your applied music instructor through weekly lessons and performance classes.
We tweaked the language and diction requirements for singers and the advanced theory sequence for instrumental majors to make room for the extra units in business. For the MBA Track, you use your electives to prepare even further for the fifth year, so there is truly a business concentration alongside all your musical activities.

“I loved the small environment and knowing that I would get the individual attention from the professors in the conservatory-style School of Music that Stetson provides. I’ve loved Stetson since the moment I set foot there.”
