Arts Administration

The Boston University Arts Administration program was founded in 1993 and has emphasized excellence, creativity, economic problem solving, internationalism, and a commitment to the technologies of our age as core values in its curriculum.

We are deeply concerned with educating students to understand the value of a mission-driven approach to managing arts organizations—and to place that goal ahead of maximizing revenues. It is toward such an end that we sustain a deep conviction in the centrality of the role of the artist, and the fundamental importance of artistic excellence, as issues central to the health of all arts organizations in the twenty-first century.

Our students are prepared for the global responsibilities of the arts in the twenty-first century, and are eager to play leadership roles in visual, performing, and service organizations in the arts in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.
