At NAS, we have worked with leaders in all stages of their careers. It is what we do. We are connectors, supporters, partners and advancers. We know that being a leader in the arts and culture field takes grit, confidence and the ability to find new possibilities around every corner.
With the University of Pennsylvania as our collaborator, we’ve developed the Executive Program in Arts and Culture Strategy. This eight-month online and in-person cultural leadership program was designed for early to mid-career professionals in the arts and culture sector. Courses are flexible and tailored to the field, focusing on the expertise we know is necessary to get ahead in this field. The rigorous course content combines ivy-league curriculum and the industry knowledge of NAS. Participants will leave the program with the ability to think strategically, manage people and money, work well with a board of directors and create maximum value around mission. Participants will gain an understanding of organizational behavior and have confidence in their leadership style.
The cost commitment and amount of time in the classroom makes traditional degree programs out of reach for too many. The Executive Program in Arts & Culture Strategy is less than a year in length, allows for coursework to be completed when it works best for the individual and costs a total of only $4,950.
