Arts Management Certificate Courses



Arts organizations today face a shifting financial, demographic, technological and legal environment. In response, Texas Executive Education, the McCombs School of Business, and the College of Fine Arts have come together to develop the Arts Management Certificate. This Certificate series will provide you with managerial and entrepreneurial skills and strategies to help successfully pursue your institutional mission in today’s environment – meeting challenges, but also taking advantage of new opportunities.
Our distinctive program will enable you to:
Develop fundamental skills and explore cross-cutting issues while recognizing that arts organizations are diverse
Focus on understanding overarching approaches and assessing which approaches will best meet the needs of your institution
Translate concepts and frameworks into practical applications through the use of case studies and exercises
Earning an Arts Management Certificate requires completing three core courses and three electives. Each is designed to compliment all the others, so you may take the courses in any order. Participants have two years to complete the requirements.
