Program Goals and ObjectivesThe purpose of the Performing Arts Management Program is to provide an opportunity for students to broaden their knowledge of the performing arts, to help them acquire an understanding of business theories and techniques and the application of these to the performing arts, and to assist them in gaining a variety of meaningful work experiences in the field through externships and professional residencies. The goal of the program is to graduate students who are immediately qualified to assume specialized administrative positions with professional arts organizations and, importantly, students who will eventually assume leading management positions in the field.
