Three universities have joined together to launch a twelve-month International Arts Management Masters program, which beginning in fall 2013 will offer a new M.M. degree program in International Arts Management. The three partner universities—HEC Montréal in Canada (formerly known as École des Hautes Études commerciales de Montréal), Bocconi University Graduate School of Management in Milan, Italy, and Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas—will each offer one four-month session to prepare students to manage and lead international arts and cultural organizations. Topics to be covered in the program include cultural policy, international law and the arts, cultural economics and the international art market, urban planning and cultural tourism, the international digital media market, and the strategy and governance of 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, chair of the Division of Arts Management and Arts entrepreneurship at the SMU Meadows School of the Arts.
