Thoughts about Masters Programs with Berklee student Nicole Bono

My name is Nicole Bono, I am currently a 7th semester student at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and a Music Business major.  Approaching the end of my studies, I started to look at Grad Programs.  I knew right from the start that I would want to continue my studies in the entertainment industry, and focus onto International work.  I am bilingual, fluent in English and Italian, and loving languages and travel so much I know that I want to be involved in the International workplace, especially if I can combine those passions along with the Music Industry.
The Berklee Valencia Masters Program seemed to be a perfect match for me, and the more I began to read about it and ask the people on campus, the more it interested me. I began to fill out my application, signing up, gathering my thoughts, and coming up with a Statement of Purpose.  I found that e-mailing the people in the admissions office was very helpful. When the representative, Nigel Lees came over to Boston, I met with him as well, and he was so helpful to give me that extra push.
Finally, just the other day I submitted my application! Now I am waiting to hear back and hopefully I will have to prepare for an interview in April.  I am so excited to be a part of this whole experience, and maybe in September, I’ll be lucky enough to be part of the first class at Berklee Valencia.
