Creative Enterprise (Art Pathway)

If you have ambitions to progress in an entrepreneurial career by either pursuing a start-up opportunity on your own or taking a leading managerial role in a creative firm, the MA Creative Enterprise (Art Pathway) is the ideal programme for students from a range of subject backgrounds. All of our staff are dynamic, high-profile practising artists, curator and writers. Through their teaching, you will have the opportunity to engage with theoretical texts and publication projects whilst benefiting from industry links with exhibition and curatorial initiatives. The art pathway focuses on the entrepreneurial education in the business of art, and the programme modules draw on the academic research strengths to create a distinctive blend of critical practice and theory. Within our collaborative environment, we will map the contemporary art world exploring the production, dispersion and analysis of art and its institutions. Combining interdisciplinary academic expertise from the School of Arts and Communication Design, Henley Business School and the School of Law, you will gain the knowledge you need to make your future a success through modules in management and entrepreneurship. As a postgraduate student at Reading, you will benefit from our external exhibitions, symposia and workshops. Participation in our Asia network means you will have opportunities to exhibit in Japan, China and South Korea. Plus, our associate partnership with the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, gives you membership for events, internship opportunities and seminar space in London. **Careers** This is the ideal programme for those looking to pursue a career in the fast-growing creative sector, whether that be in a start-up or in a managerial role at a creative firm. **Modules** - Critical practice or dissertation - International study visit - Mapping the art world - Management in creative and cultural industries - Entrepreneurial management for creative artists
