An Online Undergraduate Certificate for Artists and Performers

Manage and Promote Your Own Career

You have the talent. You've honed your craft and people love your creations. Now you face the challenge that has confronted artists and performers since the first two-rock percussion solo – how do you get your work in front of more people and make it your career?

Entrepreneurial skill is often the missing ingredient that keeps talented artists from building successful careers in the fine arts. This certificate is designed to help you master the additional art of self-promotion and turn your passion into a business.

Create Your Own Opportunities

This Arts Entrepreneurship Certificate is an interdisciplinary program that blends entrepreneurship with expertise from the arts.

  • Build your skills in marketing, self-promotion and business planning.
  • Develop a professional digital resume.
  • Collaborate with other artists and performers to advance your artistic vision.
