From May 20-24, 2019, students from the Master of Arts in Global Entertainment and Music Business program attended four industry-specific seminars, which were packed with guest speakers, presentations, performances, and more. Prominent guests included Sergio Elmir (Futuro Libre Creative Agency), Allie Silver (Free Radical Production), Felix Contreras (NPR Alt.Latino), Camilo Lara (Casete), Juan Paz (Peace Management), and many more.
