Our music business partnerships with Stage AE and WYEP gives our SAEM students taking courses in entertainment management direct access to entertainment venues and key job opportunities in the field. 

Additionally, Point Park University's record label, Pioneer Records, is managed by SAEM students who learn about aspects of the music business from record promotion to live concerts. Pioneer Records is unique among colleges and universities in the Pittsburgh region and is housed at Red Caiman Studios, a commercial recording studio in Pittsburgh's Uptown section.
