The Drucker/SIA collaborative program brings together the strengths of the two partners: a premier management program with the resources of a comprehensive university and The Claremont Colleges; a distinguished institute of the arts which brings over 40 years of experience in graduate art education, with its partnership with Sotheby's auction house, a large alumni network and extensive links in the global art world.
The New York and London Art Business programs are exclusively concentrated on the business of the visual arts and students have the opportunity to specialize in diverse areas of the field. Core courses are supplemented by art-related electives such as Art Collection Management, Curating Contemporary Art, Art Finance and Investing, and The Auction Business. The programs provide access to the NYC and London art scenes whereby students interact with a broad spectrum of leaders in the field, including auctioneers, dealers, collectors, consultants, museum directors, curators, and critics.
The LA program offers more depth in business and management education through the Drucker School, proximity to the Los Angeles art world, and opportunity to take courses in a diverse range of disciplines available at CGU including museum studies, archival studies, media studies, arts management, and general management.
