The Art Business MA faculty consists of both academics and art world practitioners, providing a balance between theory and practice to facilitate the understanding of the complexities of the art market and its main players.
Art Business students are introduced to established art markets of Europe and North America, as well as the emerging markets of China and South-East Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Russia, and Latin America. Field trips to art fairs as well as regular gallery and auction house visits develop first-hand knowledge of the art world and facilitate networking with its main players. Students also learn the skills of art business management and financial analysis. Elective units enable students to focus in depth on specific art market sectors and art businesses or on areas of art and related issues including contemporary Asian art, East Asian art, curating contemporary art and performance art.
Our degrees are awarded by the University of Manchester in the UK and combine professional training with academic study.
