Arts and Cultural Management
The MPS in Arts and Cultural Management is a two-year 42-credit executive-style Master's that encourages participants to consider their role in society and their respective communities as cultural arbiters and educators. Housed at Pratt’s Manhattan campus in Chelsea, the program develops leaders able to use their creativity strategically to foster creative expression, build creative community and shape a commerce of ideas and images in an increasingly challenged and mediated world. It prepares participants to lead and manage in a changing cultural landscape that includes new challenges, new media, and new forms of cultural expression. The MPS provides a collaborative learning community that sharpens critical thinking, deepens reflective practice, and develops strategic leadership skills.

The program covers:
Making connections-marketing, development, and education;
People and organizational dynamics;
Operating environments;
Finance, decision-making, and information systems

The program’s schedule and experience-based learning approach is modeled on successful executive MBA programs, with a schedule of alternating weekends (Saturday and Sunday) that allows participants to continue their full job responsibilities while they study. Classes are held for 12 hours every other weekend, coupled with a full week of instruction at the beginning, and a summer intensive that includes three weekdays.
