MAM, Master of Arts Management
Arts and cultural institutions need leaders who are as passionate as the artists and audiences they support. These organizations face unique challenges in the digital age, and Carnegie Mellon University’s Master of Arts Management (MAM) program prepares students to face those challenges and ensure that the arts continue to thrive. Combining the renowned interdisciplinary and creative power of CMU's College of Fine Arts with the analytical expertise of Heinz College, the MAM program positions graduates to be arts managers who can lead organizations at the highest level and have lasting impact on the communities they serve.
Our innovative approach centers on the intersection of people, policy, and technology with an arts focus. Courses in analytics and quantitative management—alongside many exciting opportunities for industry-centered experiential learning—will train you to navigate the rapidly changing cultural economy of the 21st century. You will emerge from the MAM program with a coveted skillset that arts organizations need and eagerly seek. Nowhere else will you find this type of skills-based, future-facing, tech-driven approach to arts management education. Nowhere else will you find this level of impact.
MAM is the ideal fit for students with a passion for the arts who wish to ensure the strength of artistic and cultural institutions, using effective quantitative management techniques to weather the complex technological, social, and political changes affecting the industry.
