The New School’s MA in Arts Management & Entrepreneurship is designed for active performing artists seeking the business skills, strategies & inspiration to drive new careers in arts management and entrepreneurship.
Discover the first master’s program that prepares active performing artists for 21st-century entrepreneurship.
In the two-year Master’s in Arts Management and Entrepreneurship at The New School in NYC, you have the opportunity to:
- Develop and execute projects designed to further your personal career goals.
- Investigate business models and practices of organizations in the cultural and creative industries.
- Respond to the political, social, technological, and economic issues that impact arts and culture enterprises.
- Learn from pioneering nonprofit and management practitioners who provide real-world insights and inspiration.
This is a program specifically designed for practicing performing artists. You are not just encouraged but required to maintain your artistic practice while you are developing your enterprise skills and knowledge.
To facilitate this, you will have the opportunity to take courses, pitch projects, and potentially perform with students and faculty from Mannes School of Music, the School of Jazz and Contemporary Music, and the School of Drama in our College of Performing Arts, as well as students and faculty across the rest of The New School. You can also receive credit for artistic work done outside of the university, like playing gigs with a band.
