Tyler Cymone Scott, a recording artist and businesswoman from Los Angeles, is the 100th student to enroll in our MBA in Music Business program. The degree is a partnership between Southern New Hampshire University and Berklee College of Music that provides the tools and knowledge critical to a thriving music career.
Tyler toured the SNHU and Berklee campuses with SNHU Academic Advisor Rob Benincasa and Admission Counselor Tamra Sirois. This is Tyler’s story:
“My name is Tyler Cymone Scott, and I’m from Los Angeles, California, and I just enrolled in SNHU and Berklee School of Music’s online MBA program.
I’ve been surrounded by music my whole life. My father is an entertainer so I’ve always felt almost called to do music, to pursue music and to entertain. My dad has always told me he didn’t have the business knowledge going in to music so him and his group got really taken advantage of.
I just felt now was a good time to continue my education and finish it out by getting an MBA in Business, but to find out that SNHU went that far as to combine with the prestigious Berklee made it that much more exciting.
Even though everything is online, it didn’t feel like there was that distance. It felt very intimate and that was the first impression that I had of the university – that it would be an intimate type of experience. Being able to come and meet everybody, it’s just blown me away. It’s more than what I ever could’ve expected, just seeing that everybody is genuinely committed to seeing students succeed. My admissions representative, she took an interest in what I had to offer, and she really showed me how this program would help to benefit me. And I had Rob as my academic advisor, and I thought it was so great that I got paired with him because he is also into music as well. Meeting them, they’re just as friendly in person as they were over the phone.
I think it’s so great that this program is able to tie in music with business for me to fulfill the dream that I have of being in music.”
