Company Info

Universal Music Group is a music label which was founded in 1934. Currently, UMG is responsible for over 30% of music sales, and is part of the "Big Three" labels alongside Sony Music Group and Warner Music Group.

Popular artists such as those pictured above have signed to UMG or its subsidiaries. Pictured above: The Beatles (top left), Lil Yachty (bottom left), Kanye West (right)

Sales numbers have declined steady for about 15 years in the music industry, but thanks to streaming services, music labels are finally seeing growth in revenue. This has led to UMG partnering with Spotify for their first long-term deal.

Job Info

Functions include: managing artist schedules and travel arrangements, managing a budget, organizing meetings and music listening sessions, conducting research, approving marketing strategies

Universal Music Group has a location in Miami. Miami is not only beautiful, but South Florida is a cultural hub. South Florida constantly churns out new artists, with many becoming successful, such as Kodak Black, Rick Ross, and Wifisfuneral. As marketing coordinator, I would help artists such as these reach the masses.
