    ARAD News: 

    The Arts Administration Program is pleased to announce two new scholarships available to the incoming class of 2015.  A heartfelt thank you for the generous donations from the family of alumna Sarah Bolson Barnett, and Kenneth and Anna Zankel!

    Program Overview:
    The program in Arts Administration (ARAD) encourages integration of all the arts, while focusing on the role of the artist, and the missions and activities of arts and cultural agencies, collectives, and institutions.
    The program reflects the conviction that the management of cultural institutions and enterprises is a profession that requires both creativity and commitment and that, at its best, the profession has a positive impact on the quality of artistic life. Arts Administration is organized in conjunction with the programs in Arts & Humanities department and the Columbia Business School, further reflecting the importance of the basic educational role, mission, and activities of the arts in both profit and nonprofit sectors.
