Courses & Admissions
The Arts Management course provides a solid theoretical and practical foundation to business administration and management practice within the arts industry.
Arts Managers are responsible for building the framework upon which the arts industry operates – they seek the sponsorship, funding, staff and audience required for a production to become reality.
The Arts Management course provides students with the knowledge and skills required to manage theatre companies, venues, dance companies, exhibitions, community arts centres, galleries, concerts, festivals and other institutions within the arts and entertainment industries.
