Berklee Valencia will also sponsor Concerts a la Fundació in conjunction with Fundación Bancaja, the innovative Discover-i concert series, and Synesthesia, a three-day concert series featuring both students and faculty. 

In January 2020, the campus will host the Global Career Summit, with visiting experts who will help students with their professional development and career paths through a series of panels, workshops, and individual mentoring sessions. In April, the campus will host the DIY Musician Conference Europe in collaboration with CD Baby, where attendees will have the opportunity to deeply engage and interact with brands and companies in the independent music industry.

With a unique curriculum, as well as an International Career Center, the Valencia campus offers Berklee’s first graduate programs in Music Production, Technology, and Innovation, Contemporary Performance (Production Concentration), Scoring for Film, Television, and Video Games, and Global Entertainment and Music Business. More than $1.4 million in scholarships has been awarded to graduate students for this academic year.
