Arts Management

B.F.A./M.B.A. in Arts Management


The B.F.A. in Arts Management/M.B.A. combines exceptional undergraduate arts education with an elite graduate degree in business in a five-year format that saves significant time and cost.

Graduates of the new program will hold the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Arts Management and the Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)—credentials that will give them a significant advantage in the exciting but competitive world of arts management.

Students in this program will possess an extraordinary combination of training in the arts and management knowledge that will be highly valued in the arts and entertainment industry. Earning both the B.F.A. and the M.B.A. in just five years, instead of the traditional six years, will save money and enable graduates to begin their careers that much sooner.

The LIU Post B.F.A. in Arts Management provides competency in the fine arts with a solid foundation in business. It includes concentrations in visual arts, music, theater, and dance that feature history and theory classes as well as internships on and off campus. Students have been placed at DreamWorks Theatrical Productions, Stomp, SONY Music, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Parsons Dance, Nassau Coliseum, Island Def Jam Recordings, Heckscher Museum, and other venues in the New York metropolitan area.

The LIU Post M.B.A. is accredited by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, a distinction shared by fewer than 5 percent of business schools worldwide. The College of Management has been ranked among the nation’s best 294 business schools for 10 consecutive years by The Princeton Review.

The combined bachelor’s and M.B.A. degree program requires the completion of 159 credits, 123 undergraduate credits, and 36 graduate credits for the M.B.A.

Admission into the Graduate Program

A student’s acceptance will be determined by both an undergraduate advisor and the College of Management’s Office of Graduate Programs. Once accepted, the student will take six credits of graduate courses (MBA 621-Financial Markets & Institutions and MBA 625-Global Business Environments & Operations) during the final semester as an undergraduate student. These six credits will apply to both the undergraduate and graduate course load and the student will now be required to complete 30 credits in the M.B.A. program rather than the required 36 credits. After completing the 30 credits, again meeting all graduate requirements in the master’s program, the student will be awarded both the B.F.A. in Arts Management and the M.B.A. However, if the master’s portion of the program is not completed during the allotted five year limit, and an extension is not granted, only the B.F.A will be awarded and any successfully completed graduate credits above the 129 will not be credited toward a graduate degree. Please note: if a student chooses or is asked to leave the program without completion of the graduate portion, these six credits will be applied to the undergraduate portion only.

To declare intention to enroll in the B.F.A. in Arts Management/M.B.A., please contact your undergraduate advisor for a declaration form or the College of Management at 516-299-2098.
