Expert teaching staff
One of the distinguishing elements of IMB School that most value our students is the professional profile of our faculty, fully formed by experts active in each of the areas and themes that make up the curricula of our programs.
The selection and composition of teachers is done according to the objectives and needs of each of the courses. Your function is essential; Not only are they the most responsible for generating and transmitting knowledge, but they also boost our networking and become a main link with the reality of the music industry.
IMB School is a training project conceived from and for the music sector that has the involvement of a selection of leading organizations in different areas of activity. Therefore, beyond the collaborating entities, we distinguish the role of the official partner as an agent committed to the creation of a virtuous circle between the world of training and the professional world.
In addition to being a main source of knowledge that we share with our students, they add value to the training experience and promote excellence through their participation in the talent scholarship program.
The Learning-by-Doing methodology of the Postgraduate in Business Management of Music is one of the main assets of the program. It has an eminently practical orientation and is focused on the management of real musical projects that students will have to develop throughout the course.
In this way we turn the study work into an experiential experience, and we guarantee that, upon completion of the postgraduate course, the participants will have been able to contrast their theoretical knowledge with the activity they have had to perform in the different stages of each project.
The relationship with the music industry is at the foundation of IMB School . We understand specialized training as an intermittent state in the professional development process of our students. Mainly because their trajectories will be defined by their abilities and vocations, but also by the network of professional relationships that they will establish during the course with all the teachers and the rest of their classmates.
In IMB School we firmly believe in networking as an essential activity in the music sector, that is why we promote it regularly among all those who have studied some of the programs directed by our academic management.
For years, the traditional academic framework of university education has been questioned and surpassed by more disruptive models that approach specialized training in a more open and multidisciplinary way.
IMB School training project arises from the need to rethink the training around the global business of music to respond to these five great challenges: the identification of the vocation; the development of capabilities; the integral learning experience; the creation of new knowledge; and the generation of globally competitive manager talent.
