MA in Communications and Art Management


Program Description

MA in Communications and Art Management

New Advanced program is focused on specific fields of art business and integration of the state-of-the-art approaches to education with standards and demands of business. Priority is given to IT and various forms of edutainment.

The program was developed in mid 90-s and didn’t have analogs in Russia. The lack of specialists in rapidly growing entertainment business determines constant demand of skilled managers. The program combines business and management disciplines with the development of special skills in communications, PR, and arts.

The program is unique as it has a weighted balance of contact hours, run by leading Russian and international experts, and real project work in art business (communication agencies, TV companies, theatres, orchestras, festivals and contests, sports events, etc). The innovative study is based on the following:

  • Creative methods (creative labs);
  • Project work;
  • Early business focus;
  • Research activity.
