About the University of Zurich’s Art Market Studies program
The next part-time program begins in September 2015 and lasts until June 2017. Courses are held on Fridays and Saturdays in Zurich and are taught entirely in English.

The Executive Master in Art Market Studies equips participants with the professional and innovative skills needed to master the challenges of today’s art market. It promotes entrepreneurial thinking and fosters an ethical approach to the art market. Program participants benefit from Switzerland’s outstanding network of research institutions, art market specialists, and professionals. The program’s teaching staff includes scholars and international art market specialists who bring systematic instruction as well as a broad range of knowledge and experience to our program. The unique integrative and interdisciplinary program is structured in three major areas:

History of Art and Connoisseurship
Art Law and Ethics
Art Valuation and Management

These subjects are conveyed in lectures, art appraisal workshops, and case studies, as well as through field trips to art fairs, galleries, and biennales in Basel, Berlin, London, Maastricht, and Sao Paulo.

Participants will:

–develop their knowledge of the history, materials, and production processes of fine and applied arts from the Renaissance to the present day;

–evaluate artworks and use the latest art market analytical tools;

–use case studies to improve legal knowledge and foster ethical thinking;

–learn to synthesize and analyze processes that are critical to small and mid­-sized businesses, and to develop innovative solutions for the commercial art world;

–develop their leadership and management skills.

The program is primarily designed for university graduates who are currently active in the art market or who intend to be. Professional experience will be considered. Academic credit in compliance with the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) will be awarded for passing examinations, written works, and the Master’s thesis.
