Berklee’s expansion has many drivers, some rooted in its traditional on-campus operations and others that are more entrepreneurial in nature. Together they have solidified Berklee’s enrollment and boosted its student residency numbers to record highs in the current fall semester. This September, Berklee broadened its enrollment reach with the launch of its first-ever online degrees in music business and music production. Chief Financial Officer Mac Hisey said the programs have around 240 students today and are on track to exceed expectations with approximately 300 enrollees by year end. The degree programs were targeted to enroll only 250 students in this first year and augment Berklee’s already 10,000-strong population of students taking courses online. “It’s actually expanding our demographic,” he said.
