Fresh from presenting Andy Murray with the Wimbledon Men’s Singles title only a week previously, the Duke of Kent had the even greater honour of awarding ACM students with their degrees at our University of Surrey graduation this week.
The Duke, the university’s Chancellor, advised students to be incredibly proud of their achievement in an era that has seen incredible innovation and development in a diverse range of fields. It’s safe to say that ACM’s Music Business and Audio Production students are leading those innovations within the music industry.
‘We are hugely proud of our graduating students and their achievements. To hear of so many in ‘dream’ industry jobs makes this all so worthwhile. Watching students produce brilliant work worthy of a degree, taking their first jobs in the music industry at the same time is what ACM is all about: equipping you at the highest academic standards for the ‘real’ world of music business.”
Julia Martin Head of ACM’s Music Business School
Chatting with our newest graduates in the champagne and Pimm’s marquee after the ceremony between trips to the chocolate fountains, it was revealed that we have students working at: Universal, BAFTA, writing books on digital innovation in the music industry, running their own successful festivals and advising government on digital media investment.
ACM is enormously proud of all our students both in the academic studies and beyond as they become the next generation of music industry entrepreneurs. Congratulations class of 2010-2012!
We wish you all the very best of luck in your chosen career pathways and hope that you will stay in touch and tell us what you’re doing!
