Description: This course will offer an overview and foundation for students interested in developing, launching, or advancing innovative enterprises in arts, culture, design, and humanities. Students from a variety of creative majors across campus will learn the unique contexts and challenges of creative careers. The course will help students understand the nature and structure of arts enterprise - for-profit, nonprofit and in between - while cultivating their own career vision and creative project goals.
The course is a weekly, three-hour class, presented over 15 weeks. Guest lectures by creative professionals and class discussions will ensure ongoing connections between theory and practice. The course is intended to align with the Wisconsin School of Business undergraduate and graduate Entrepreneurship Certificate for students who are interested in a more intensive focus on creative enterprise.
