With more than 100 billion dollars annually changing hands in a complex international marketplace, there is a pressing need for sophisticated, well-educated art professionals who combine a thorough knowledge of art and art objects with a keen understanding of business.

Our MA in Art Business programs provide a vocational bridge for traditional art history students into this wider commercial art world. Balancing academic rigor with real-world applications in a dynamic environment, these programs equip students with the skills and knowledge in art markets and business management, connoisseurship and collecting.

Our campuses are based in the thriving contemporary art nexuses of London, New York and Los Angeles. But the MA in Art Business with Sotheby’s Institute will take you worldwide. Through field trips to Venice, Miami, Shanghai or Seoul, you’ll absorb the distinctive character of different cultural scenes. We’ll introduce you to need-to-know people and places through visits and guest talks.

Art is a global business and each year, passionate students from all over the globe join our Master’s programs in Art Business in London, New York and Los Angeles to gain the knowledge and skills needed to launch a successful career in the international art world.
