Arts Management and Entrepreneurship Program

Given the challenges for artists and arts organizations to survive in an increasingly competitive business environment, the need for educated arts managers and entrepreneurs is increasing. The Arts Management and Arts Entrepreneurship program is a synthesis of art, creativity, innovation, management, and entrepreneurship.

Students will learn to balance aesthetic understanding with specialized skills in generating income, managing boards, stimulating public access, and sustaining the mission and vision of organizations whose primary purpose is the delivery, presentation, and preservation of arts and culture. These skills are applicable to arts councils, museums, community art centers, galleries, orchestras, theatres, creative enterprises or starting an arts venture.
