Arts managers matter because they are the ultimate mediators between art works and their best audience.  Arts leaders must negotiate the increasingly complex cultural, socioeconomic, legal, and political systems that challenge sustainable arts environments.
The University at Buffalo's MA in Arts Management prepares you to face these challenges.  Through its unique blend of critical inquiry, analysis, and experiential learning, the program builds your capacity to identify and solve the problems inherent in the areas of arts management, production, and cultural policymaking.

Black Lives Matter, End White Silence

The Arts Management Program at the University at Buffalo stands in support of our black and brown students, alums, and community colleagues and condemns white supremacist violence, logics, and institutions. We affirm UB President Satish K. Tripathi’s message condemning “intolerance, hatred, and institutional racism.” Recent events underscore the importance of such values and of the principles articulated in our diversity statement.

We invite you to read President Tripathi’s message to the UB community.
