Degrees Offered:

MAM, Master of Arts Management

Format: Campus

Program Description:

A world without art is a world without culture, heart, passion, or creativity. Strengthening our cultural institutions is one of the most important ways an individual can serve the public good. Love the Arts? Take the Lead.

The Master of Arts Management (MAM) program offers a relevant arts management education designed to put your passion into practice, foster leadership, and maximize impact on the visual and performing arts industry -- all at a university that fosters innovation, in a city that loves the arts.

The arts enable us to look honestly at ourselves and our society. The arts cause us to think, to feel, and to reexamine. A world without art is a world without culture, without heart, without passion, without creativity. Maintaining and strengthening our cultural institutions, therefore, is one of the most important ways an individual can serve the public good.

You won't acquire the skills for your arts management career in a business school, where the focus is on managing in the corporate world.  And you certainly won't get management skills in an arts school, where the focus is on the arts.

But you will develop these skills in a top-tier program that integrates both of these worlds through CMU's Heinz College and the College of Fine Arts.

The core curriculum for MAM reviewed, refined and validated by some of the most incredibly innovative and passionate professionals in the field, provides the key foundation skills you need to become an effective  leader.
