Arts Management Certificate

Enlighten the business behind the arts.

Tailored to those who work at the intersection of business and creativity, the Arts and Nonprofit Certificate Program offers specific strategies and solutions for managing operations at museums, photography studios, galleries, and more. Texas Executive Education works in partnership with the UT College of Fine Arts for this certificate to offer enlightenment to the business behind art and arts management. This series of classes examines the ways business and art intersect, and the most effective ways to navigate the financial, technological, demographic, and legal challenges of both worlds.

Earning an Arts Management Certificate requires completing three core classes (Nonprofit Boards: Working with Them and Serving on Them, Foundations of Nonprofit Arts Management, and Fundraising in the Arts: Principles and Practice) and three electives. Each class is designed to complement the others, so you may take the classes in any order. Participants have two years to complete the requirements.
