The Pop Academy is a public university, founded in 2003 by the state of Baden-Württemberg. The project has been supported by noted concerns from the music world and artists such as Mannheim’s perhaps best-known musician, Xavier Naidoo, who is also a visiting lecturer at the Pop Academy.  The Pop Academy offers two courses of studies, which always start in the winter semester: “pop music design” and “music business.” For each course, some 30 places a year are available, and a full Bachelor of Arts degree takes six semesters.
