In partnership with University of Michigan.
In this 8 week course, offered through University of Michigan's School of Music Theater & Dance, students were given a behind-the-scenes look into how the media technology industry really works. We provided a high-level overview of the media technology industry — focusing on the music technology space. We introduced the product development process from ideation through shipping, explored a variety of industry roles, explored the types of companies available for students' future careers, and presented the business fundamentals used by all companies, engineers, and product teams.
