IMEP: a historic partnership for Berklee in Paris

In 2017, IMEP • Paris College of Music was selected to join the Berklee College of Music’s prestigious “Berklee Global Partners” network.

IMEP thus became the first school in Paris to form a partnership with the most famous training university for modern music. It joined the ranks of other highly respected schools such as Dublin’s Newpark Music Centre, Rimon School of Music in Israel, Conservatorio Musical Souza Lima in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and several others.

Ever since its foundation in 1945, Berklee College of Music has brought about a revolution in musical education by developing an innovative infrastructure and range of teaching concepts. It has also built up close contacts within the music industry and with the most prestigious International artists, many of whom are former students.

In 2020, Berklee College of Music expressed renewed confidence in IMEP by agreeing to an academic-credit transfer and equivalence scheme with us. Academic partnerships are the most complete partnerships set up by Berklee with outside educational institutions. Through the academic-credit transfer and equivalence agreement, between Berklee and IMEP, students at IMEP • Paris College of Music are able to have their acquired competencies recognized by Berklee College of Music.
