Become a changemaker and an innovator
Mike Curb Master of Arts in Creative Enterprise and Cultural Leadership students are changemakers and innovators working toward more just and sustainable futures that connect art and design to society. The program responds to increasing interest in the roles that arts and design play in fields ranging from health and community development to infrastructure and technology. It also builds on innovations in the creative industries that are disrupting traditional business models, advancing technological change, and democratizing access to culture. Using arts and design-based methods to advance a spectrum of enterprises, graduates are equipped to pursue positions as arts managers, cultural producers, civic leaders, business leaders, among others. In 2015, the Mike Curb Family Foundation provided the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts with the incentive to launch curricular programs in creative enterprise and cultural leadership.
