About the
Master in International Arts Management

Our mission is to train a new generation of international arts managers who envision and assess the present and future of active organizations in the performing arts and heritage sectors (museums, historic sites), or in cultural industries (film, publishing, sound recording, etc.).

No other international arts management degree offers the opportunity to travel to seven cities in six countries, study in top arts and business schools, and share with a diverse group of students, professors, faculty and organizations.


Is it an accredited arts management degree?

Yes, it is accredited. The diploma will bear the names of SMU and HEC with the participation of SDA Bocconi. The three schools are accredited.

Although it does not appear on the diploma, we have a partnership with Universidad de los Andes, in Bogotá, where you will participate in a 10-day campus abroad.

How many students will be accepted?

A maximum of 18 students will be accepted per cohort.

May I apply to the program if my BA is not directly in the arts?

You may apply if your BA is not directly in the arts, but you should list all your work experience in the arts as well as any internships that you have held, and you should describe your motivation for working in this field (in the written statement). You should also show that you have an interest in working in an international market (interest in other cultures, languages, and so on).

Why an international approach?

Because the arts market has become global. Through this international arts management program, you will learn to deal with different cultures by studying and living in seven cities in five countries and by being part of a diverse group comprising people from all over the world.
