The purpose of the Music Business Program is to develop business leaders for the music industry. By integrating content from a variety of disciplines, the program will create an intellectual synergy beyond what students can achieve in either the current business or music programs separately. Success in the music business requires a broad array of knowledge from a variety of diverse fields.
UGA: Share a little bit about your time interning with Tyler Perry Studios.
Jamilla Johnson: It was truly a life-changing experience. I was a production assistant for If Loving You is Wrong and Love Thy Neighbor, two of Tyler Perry’s television shows. One of the main reasons I loved working there is because no two days were alike. Although the hours were long, time flew by because it was enjoyable. Being in such a fast-paced atmosphere and being surrounded by hard-working people who have years of experience were definitely attributes of the internship that contributed to it being a great learning environment. And I loved meeting the talent, of course.
