Manager Survey on Professional Development Sessions

Music Mogul: Where Worlds Collide

Monday, December 1, 2014

On Friday, November 28th, the Purdy Crawford Chair in Aboriginal Business Studies launched its educational game Music Mogul at the opening of the In.Business -- A Business Network for Indigenous Youth program. Developed in partnership with Revolve and Twisted Oak Studios of Halifax, Music Mogul puts the player in the role of manager for a Canadian Aboriginal musical group. As the group tours across Canada, the player chooses the communities that are visited on each tour, selects and purchases merchandise for sale at shows, and arranges for advertising campaigns. The player also negotiates the cost of venue rental, sets the ticket prices for each show and the mark-up for merchandise, and takes out and repays loans throughout the game. The manager may also decide to record a new single to gain new fans. The success of the tours is determined by all of the choices the player makes and how well the band plays during shows through fun mini games that test the agility and rhythm of players! Through a logbook, the player tracks the growth of their fan base, as well as their income and expenses. The ultimate goal is to become a Music Mogul by making $1 million dollars or playing in 39 towns or cities from coast to coast to coast.
