In this seminar, students investigate and analyze the role and
practice of management in arts-based settings.  Students study the
business of theater production and apply that knowledge to other
arts-related enterprises.  They are expected to develop a full
vocabulary of arts management critical to grant writing and fund
raising.  Students will formulate a managerial toolkit to facilitate
decision-making strategies that are appropriate to an art
organizationís strategic vision.  Students of Management and the
Arts will gain an appreciation of the past, current, and future
challenges of arts management, and they will become seasoned
connoisseurs of the arts who possess an understanding of the balance
of business and passion necessary to enact artistsí visions.
