Why Study This Unique Arts Program

Future Careers

The degree takes MBA content and customises it to prepare students for managerial careers in arts, music and entertainment.

World Class Lecturers

The program features an exciting and diverse group of lecturers and guest speakers, including industry leaders.

Small Seminar Groups

As one graduate has written “The experience has also been enhanced by being in a smaller tutorial group rather than a lecture hall full of people. This has provided innumerable opportunities for questioning, interaction, conversation, and sharing of ideas with the lecturers and other participants.”

Sydney Opera House

All seminars take place under the sails of this world heritage listed, international icon. Queue behind opera characters in costume for your lunch in the Green Room. Look out from the Boardroom on the sparkling harbour. Listen to the experience of Sydney Opera House staff participants and guest speakers.

Diversity of Students

An interesting, bright and diverse student group who make an excellent contribution to the seminar discussions. Great student feedback and ratings. To date 96% of seminar participants have been satisfied with the seminars (80% have been “more than” or “extremely” satisfied with the seminars).


The degree costs 40% less than some Australian MBA programs. FEE-HELP is available, which is a Commonwealth Government loan for eligible fee-paying students to help pay part or all of your tuition fees. No interest is payable on postgraduate FEE-HELP loans.

Course Structure

The intensive two day seminar structure minimises impact on working lives, and makes it easier for international students to undertake part time work. It has also helped us attract presenters who would simply be unavailable for more conventional weekly lectures.

Single Module Registrations

Note that it is possible to register interest in undertaking individual modules, without applying for admission into the degree. Each ‘module’ requires attendance at a two day seminar, held on a Friday and a Saturday, designed to reduce the impact on busy working lives.

The City of Sydney

The degree offers an attractive cross-cultural experience for international students, in a vibrant, multicultural city. Sydney possesses a warm, sub-tropical climate, and its harbour and coastline are internationally renowned.
