New MA program to examine the history of art and its markets

Claremont University's Drucker School of Management has announced plans to launch a new master's degree program in the art business, through a partnership with Sotheby's Institute of Art.

The new program is three semesters long, and will mainly focus on western art markets, although some classes will focus on the emerging markets in Asia and Latin America.

The curriculum will cover aspects of "business, law, marketing, and finance, supplemented by specialized modules in such key subjects as gallery and auction house operations, art collection management and art evaluation," according to a press release.

Courses will be taught by both Drucker professors as well as Sotheby scholars and other art experts.

In the third and final semester of the program, students can select electives from the school's MBA offerings (or other art-related courses from Claremont.)

The new program is set to launch in the fall. For more information, please see the Drucker School press release announcing the launch of the master's degree in art business.
