The 2014 UB Arts Management Summer School in Vienna with hosts EDUCULT.

Arts management matters because the arts manager is the final mediator between art and the public. The challenge for us today is to find ways of forging independent links between each artwork and its true audience, while negotiating the increasingly complex legal, political and economic bonds that now constrain the management of the arts.

The intention of UB's graduate Arts Management Program is to equip students to become effective arts managers. The curriculum is designed to increase the student's ability to identify and solve the complex, interdisciplinary problems and tensions that are inherent in the areas of arts management and cultural policy making.


We are a small, nimble, intimate program that offers a dynamic two year course of study comprising core courses in arts management, law, business, cultural policy and advocacy.
