Undergraduate Certificate in Business & Art

All art courses must be taken on-campus

Certificate Description
The Certificate in Business and Art provides for the analysis and hands-on implementation of applied, innovative arts projects and business practices for all majors interested in maximizing creative problem solving with the integration of marketing and finance development in order to realize long-term strategies.
A key outcome is the ability for artists and business graduates to effectively communicate and collaborate across disciplines too often considered as opposites. Both creativity and the understanding of fundamental business practices are essential to everyone in the future, regardless of fields of study, work and engagement.
