Are you attracted to the world of art? Behind the creativity and originality, it is a business just like everything else, but a very special one at that. At IBS you can study arts management and learn to navigate between the players of the market to be successful.
This is a specialisation of the Business Management programme.
This programme trains you to be successful in managing the people and the organisations that make up the arts and events communities. You will not only gain insight into the history, funding, ownership and creation of arts, including the music industry but also get hands-on experience with the artistic creative process through practicum modules. By taking optional modules, you can immerse yourself in special areas of interest, such as pop music, the film industry or gallery management.
We give considerable importance to increasing students' employability skills. IBS has set up its UpSkill scheme, which enhances and develops the skills which are most demandable in the job arena to ensure that our graduates have an advantage over others in job applications. Read more about it here.

By taking optional modules, you can immerse yourself in special areas of interest, such as pop music, the film industry or gallery management. Many graduates work as curators in art galleries or museums, or as writers or consultants working in areas related to visual culture and the art market. The training and skills you acquire will also prepare you for a whole range of careers that are not necessarily related to your subject of study.
