DALLAS (SMU) HEC Montréal, SDA Bocconi School of Management and SMUs Arts Management and Arts Entrepreneurship program will finalize an agreement on May 30 to launch a new 12-month International Arts Management Master of Management Degree (M.M.). Beginning in fall 2013, the new M.M. degree will be the first to focus on issues unique to international arts management and to approach arts management from a global perspective. The program includes one semester at each of the three partner universities and will prepare students to manage and lead international arts and cultural organizations.
"As arts and cultural industries grow increasingly interconnected and global in scope, our new M.M. degree responds to the heightened demand for a graduate program specializing in international arts management," said Zannie Voss, professor of Arts Management in the Meadows School of the Arts and Cox School of Business, and chair of the Division of Arts Management and Arts Entrepreneurship at Meadows.
