“We had an amazing time in Burbank on October 23rd! I greeted each individual person as they came through the door and I was ecstatic to hear how excited our students are about the Berklee Online experience. What was even more exciting was the number of online degree students who attended the event! Many of the students I met from the degree program had either just started or were close to finishing! It was wonderful to see them networking and connecting their L.A. community,” said Senior Academic Advisor Mark Hopkins of the meet-up he hosted with instructors Neil Diercks and Erik Hawkins.

“At AES, I met with several prospective students including one of our degree applicants who was provisionally admitted. He didn’t have the funds needed to take his provisional course with us but instead presented me with four Berklee Coursera certificates to show his academic aptitude! We have since fully accepted him into the program,” said Admissions Director Michael Moyes of the AES Conference. Academic Advisor Jeremy Miller continued, “It was great to see so many fellow Berklee graduates at AES, most of whom are successfully navigating our turbulent industry. These former students are now out there working in world-class studios with world-class colleagues on everything from raw indie music to polished top charting hits.”
