MAM Dual Degrees


The Heinz College MAM Program has dual degree partnerships with the following institutions and departments. Dual degree programs have distinct admissions requirements, please contact the Admissions office for more information.

Duration: 2.5 years

Combine the quantitative and interdisciplinary rigor of Carnegie Mellon University with University of Bologna's innovative approach to global arts management, and you get a degree that will catch the eye of any cultural institution. In the MAM-GIOCA dual degree track, you will gain an exciting international perspective on arts and cultural operations, an especially ideal experience if you aspire to be a leader in international arts and culture.

Students in this dual degree option spend their first two semesters in Bologna, Italy. Coming to Pittsburgh for their second year, students complete a total of three semesters of coursework at Heinz College, as well as a summer internship and a Capstone Project.

Degrees earned:

Master of Arts Management (MAM)
Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz College

Graduate Degree in Innovation and Organization of Culture and the Arts (GIOCA)
Università di Bologna School of Economics

Admissions:

Students follow the application process for Heinz College; a separate application to University of Bologna is not required.

Heinz College application deadline: January 10 

Please note MAM-GIOCA is a dual degree program track, not an exchange/study abroad program.

Financial aid and scholarships are available for MAM-GIOCA from both Heinz College and University of Bologna. Please contact the Heinz College admissions office for more information.

Duration: 4 years

The art world continues to evolve in our digitized and connected world. This unique dual degree track gives you a deeper understanding of how legal considerations impact all stages of the artistic process and enhances your ability to protect, represent, and serve artists and cultural institutions alike.

If your future career lies at the intersection of arts management and the law, the MAM-JD dual degree track will get you the comprehensive education you need in less time—and at a significantly lower cost—by merging the quantitative power and interdisciplinary training of a Heinz College MAM degree with a rigorous legal education from University of Pittsburgh.

Students in this dual degree option spend their first year studying full-time at either of the two schools, and the second year full-time at the other. Years three and four are integrated. 

Degrees earned:

Master of Arts Management (MAM)
Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz College

Juris Doctorate
University of Pittsburgh School of Law

Admissions:

Students must complete applications for both Heinz College and University of Pittsburgh School of Law and be accepted into both programs—students must therefore take the GMAT or GRE, as well as the LSAT. A third, separate “joint-degree program application” is required by University of Pittsburgh.

Admission to the MAM-JD dual degree program can be granted prior to or during the first year of study at either school, meaning first-year students in either program can still seek admission into the MAM-JD track and stay on the four-year dual-degree schedule.

Heinz College application deadline: January 10

University of Pittsburgh School of Law application deadline: March 1 

Financial aid and scholarships are available for MAM-JD from both Heinz College and University of Pittsburgh. Please contact each school’s admissions office for more information.
