Is MAM Right For Me?
The Master of Arts Management (MAM) program is a joint degree offered by Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College and College of Fine Arts.
MAM is a full-time, two-year professional degree program based in Pittsburgh. The program trains students to seek evidence-based solutions to problems facing the arts and cultural sector as well as associated arts education and advocacy organizations, heritage organizations, and related fields. It is the ideal fit for students with a passion for the arts who wish to ensure the strength of artistic and cultural institutions, using effective quantitative management techniques to weather the complex technological, social, and political changes affecting the industry.
Typically, MAM students have a strong connection to the arts in their backgrounds, either in the form of work experience, prior education, or artistic practice. However, such experience is not a pre-requisite; the MAM program is a degree well-suited to anyone with an interest in quantitative skills and a dedication to a career in arts management.
