Amplifi Media, the strategic audio advisory firm, announces its CEO Steve Goldstein will teach new course at NYU called The Business of Podcasting. As an adjunct professor at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, Goldstein will helm what is believed to be the only accredited college course focused on the business side of podcasting in the country.
The Music Business program in the Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions at NYU’s Steinhardt School will offer the course for the fall semester 2023. It is open to all NYU undergraduate students.
The Business of Podcasting covers economics, content, marketing, and trends. Students will learn essential elements of the burgeoning podcast business through workshops, discussions, guest speakers, readings and research. They will evaluate the business from all angles, including the evolving economics, production, ad sales, listeners, technology, and key players, and will then create a business plan.
“Steve brings real-world podcast experience at a high level into the classroom and that will make for a rich student experience,” said Larry Miller, Clinical Professor and Director, Music Business Program NYU Steinhardt. “NYU offers many courses in audio journalism, linear storytelling and sound design, but none on the actual business of podcasting, which drives over a billion dollars in revenue. By exposing our students to the structure of podcasting, which drives over a billion dollars in revenue. By exposing our students to the structure of the podcasting segment and giving them a framework for show development, this exciting new course will help prepare the next generation of podcasting professionals.”
“I am honored to join the faculty at NYU Steinhardt School and bring the first full-semester college-level podcast course that focuses on the podcasting business to our students,” said Steve Goldstein, Founder/CEO of Amplifi Media. “The media is to stay on top of the fast-changing podcast space, and being in New York, we will introduce students to some of the top names in the field.”
Goldstein created The Business of Podcasting for NYU. The university greenlit a full 14-week undergraduate course after a successful test run in April 2022, which features top podcast executives.
