Undergraduate Certificate/Minor in Arts Entrepreneurship
What Sets Us Apart
Our program combines business courses, arts courses, and the Innovation Hub's Red Raider Startup or Hub Camp with an internship or capstone project, which empowers students to tailor the program to their strengths and interests.
One of the greatest assets to the students in the entrepreneurship program is the access to and individual attention from the faculty, guest speakers and the interdisciplinary student cohort. Additionally, the Arts Entrepreneurship program hosts internationally recognized guest speakers each year. Recent experts include Naomi Graebel, VP and CEO of Development at the Metropolitan Opera and Spring 2022 Nancy Umanoff, CEO at Mark Morris Dance Company.
Our previous students have created Arts Advocacy Community programs, A Sponsorship Finding Agency for Creative Artists, a new Summer Music Camp in Dallas, a new entirely Digital Music Publication Company, a Theatre Program for K-12 Schools, a Cowboy Hat store and a Cabaret Theatre Café was designed ready for implementation.
