This program is offered by the Chicago College of Performing Arts and the Heller College of Business. Through this interdisciplinary collaboration, a world-renowned performing arts college partners with a comprehensive business college to offer a program that provides a firm foundation in both performing arts and general business, which prepares students for administrative leadership positions in arts organizations or as entrepreneurs leading their own performing arts venture.
The degree is crafted to provide foundational skills in business, foundational skills in the performing arts, and then electives through which students can specialize further in both their business and artistic preferences. Students are able to choose from four distinct tracks: Entrepreneurial, General Business, Marketing, and Finance.
Our campus is located in the heart of Chicago’s arts district, a significant advantage to those who wish to maximize their engagement in the performing arts while they are attending college – and after graduation. This head-start on building a network is a factor for many of our students as they look ahead to starting their careers.
