Got a passion for the arts and a burning desire to make a career out of it? Then this unique Diploma in Arts Business Management (ABM) is for you.
Jointly offered by the School of Humanities & Social Sciences and School of Business & Accountancy – Singapore’s most established business school – ABM will give you the skills you need to develop and manage arts enterprises.
Here you will be exposed to the different forms of creative arts – ranging from theatre, music and dance to the visual arts. You will learn to bring in world-class performances to Singapore, market local arts programmes overseas, handle finances for arts organisations, manage creative talents, and much more!
Right from your first year, you will get industry exposure and coaching from well-known names in the local arts scene. You will enjoy opportunities to gain practical experience by volunteering and interning with major arts organisations such as the
Esplanade, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, and local museums.
Overseas study trips to arts centres are also a key feature of the ABM curriculum.
In your second year, you will get to choose between two specialisation tracks in Performing Arts Management or Visual Arts Management . The Performing Arts Management track will train you to run major festivals and events while the Visual Arts Management track will give you the know-how to manage galleries and museums.
You will also attend off-campus classes at LASALLE College of the Arts. In your final year, you will get to choose between taking on a final-year project or going on an overseas or local internship.
