CAREER / POST-GRADUATION ASSISTANCE
Professional development and entrepreneurial acumen are an important part of the CCM experience. Faculty mentorship along with the Managing Professional Performance Careers course provide a foundation for transitioning to life after graduation. Select programs also host Senior Showcases in industry hotspots like New York, Chicago and LA. CCM's Office of the Dean also offers $30,000 in student travel funding annually, which is intended to support travels to auditions, conferences and other career advancement opportunities.
CCM is also home to the Bravos Without Barriers Diversity Fellowship Program, hosted in partnership with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Made possible by a $900,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the program is designed to recruit graduate students from populations that are historically underrepresented in classical music and is already garnering attention among leaders throughout the music world.
