Every arts, entertainment, and media venture, whether new or established, needs a master planner, a social architect who mediates conflicts, develops high-performing teams, and allocates scarce resources to move forward. The arts management executive possesses the analytical, communication, and strategic decision-making skills needed to successfully compete in today’s complex, convergent, and dynamic environment.
The Advanced Management concentration gives students the opportunity to deepen their quantitative and qualitative abilities, expand their business intelligence, and sharpen their strategic planning competencies so that they can lead all types of organizations ranging from a music venue, a pop-up art gallery, or the business affairs unit of a international media company.
If you are a risk-taker looking to craft the strategies needed to lead and manage the next generation of arts, entertainment, and media organizations or if graduate school is your ultimate goal, with your sights set on a law degree or MBA, then this concentration is for you.
These are a few examples of the types of careers the Advanced Management concentration will prepare you for:
- Executive Director
- Executive Producer
- Development Director
- Business Owner/Entrepreneur
- Business Manager
- Business Agent
- Business Affairs Manager
- Project Manager
