AME Graduate Certificate

The Arts Management and Entrepreneurship (AME) Graduate Certificate and the Undergraduate Minor are programs designed for students interested in building a career in the arts in an exciting and ever-changing marketplace.

The AME Graduate Certificate is a program built on a flexible structure of fine arts, arts entrepreneurship, and MBA courses that develop the skills needed for career success and creative impact. The program is rounded out by a diverse scale of local, regional, and international internships, and a ground-breaking, bootcamp-style arts incubation lab, called the International Arts Incubator. Offered by the Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts in collaboration with the Price College of Business, the program is designed to be taken alongside a Master's degree program, but can also be taken as a stand-alone graduate certificate.
