Mike Curb Programs in Creative Enterprise and Cultural Leadership

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.

The Master of Arts in Creative Enterprise and Cultural Leadership includes courses examining the intersection of business, government and leadership in the creative and cultural industries. In addition, it engages national leaders who demonstrate the power of bringing together art and leadership for cultural, social and economic progress.

The Accelerated Masters (4+1) program enables Herberger Institute students completing approved Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees and interested in the Master of Arts in Creative Enterprise and Cultural Leadership to complete both degrees in a five-year period.

For undergraduate coursework, the School of Music offers a certificate in Music Entrepreneurship.
