Entrepreneurialism, creativity, and innovative thinking are fast becoming the most valuable assets for excelling in today’s competitive and ever-changing economy.
Developing the entrepreneurial mindset across the Berklee community is at the heart of every BerkleeICE activity. We do this in three ways:
- On-campus and online courses, our minor in creative entrepreneurship, research projects, and our high school summer program provide educational opportunities for students to familiarize themselves with and practice the entrepreneurial process.
- Immersive student trips, sponsored intern fellowships, our Music as a Catalyst for Change series, and our Creative Entrepreneurs Conversations featuring successful innovators, disruptors, and entrepreneurs challenge students, alumni, staff, and faculty to redefine what's possible with a music degree.
- Student-organized club SEA (Student Entrepreneur's Association) attends New York City trips to companies to create an innovative community within Berklee College of Music.
- Partnerships with global design firm IDEO, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab, and other prestigious academic institutions provide access to cutting-edge tools and design approaches such as BerkleeICE's Open Music Initiative and our Summer Labs, empowering the Berklee community to put theory into practice, and explore and implement "moonshot" ideas.
Like any good startup, our programs and activities are always evolving. Call it life in permanent beta.
