Katy Hall (MAAA’06)
Katy Hall graduated from SPEA in 2006 with a Master of Arts in Arts Administration, specializing in Opera Administration. Katy graduated from University of Notre Dame in 2004 with a B.A. in Honors History and Political Science. She was attracted to SPEA’s MAAA program because it gave her the opportunity to pursue her interests while taking classes from one of the top nonprofit programs in the nation. After an internship with a museum’s public relations department in Washington, D.C., in the summer of 2003, she knew that this path of study was the best choice.
“I grew up as a performer,” Katy said, “but after college I realized that my calling was ‘backstage’ on the administration side and IU has such a well–rounded program that allows graduate students to examine all areas of the field.”
She advises incoming and prospective students to take advantage of every opportunity within the program and within the Bloomington community. “I was able to gain experience at a level that is not always found in a graduate program. It has served me well as an alumna,” she said.
Currently, Katy works with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as a Corporate Development Manager.
