"My internship experiences proved to be the most important components of the program, as each gave me an opportunity to delve into different tracks in the field of arts administration while also establishing valuable connections in New York. Now, as an intern supervisor, I always look first to the ARAD program for my interns, because I know the students will be able to handle a variety of tasks and can be counted upon to maintain an exceptional level of professionalism."

I had the opportunity to work with a small and supportive team who trusted me with projects pertaining to my particular interests, which expanded my network and deepened my understanding of marketing and the museum sector. Not only did it bring our Arts Marketing course to life, it reminded me why I moved to New York to participate in this program in the first place."
