Take advantage of unparalleled training within a university that is acclaimed for its preparation of leaders in business, management, and the arts. Your curriculum can be completed in two years of full-time study and will include course work in management studies either at the Stern School of Business or the Wagner School of Public Service. You’ll also study diverse areas of industry-specific interest – such as the environment of arts administration and marketing, finance, planning, and governance in the performing arts – and choose from electives with advice from the program director, as well as complete internships throughout New York City’s performing arts scene.
A major paper, project, or case study is required in the Seminar on Cultural Policy: Issues in Arts Administration. You’ll learn to apply fundamental tenets of business and management (marketing, law, audience development, board development and board relations, and fundraising) to the administration of performing arts organizations.
