With roots in the creative business, our academy trains students to become authentic and committed ‘impact creators’: creative professionals for the new economy, stimulating transitions by combining their creative skills with their professional and social insights.
Part of Fontys ACE is the Dance Industry program, an international curriculum (for Dutch and exchange students) that allows future professionals to kickstart a career in the electronic music industry. Possible professions include event developer, marketer, label employee, artist manager, and programmer. Our method: learning by doing.
