Sotheby's Institute of Art (London): Art Business (Hybrid)

Institution Sotheby's Institute of Art (London)
Department Sotheby's Institute of Art
Study type Taught


The global art market is the circulatory system of the art world. Business transactions are the lifeblood of the system, moving art from the studio to the gallery, the auction room, the collector’s home, and the museum. Along the way, artists, dealers, art advisors, curators, art handlers, insurers, and auction house experts engage in a complicated dance to build and sustain the value of the work and the careers and interests of all parties. Our pioneering Art Business program provides a vocational bridge for art history students into this vast commercial art world. Art Business is now a developed academic discipline in which Sotheby’s Institute continues to play the leading role. Balancing academic rigor with real-world applications in a dynamic learning environment with privileged access to key art institutions — this program equips graduates with the skills and knowledge in art markets and business management, entrepreneurship, connoisseurship, and collecting.

With the option to undertake part of the program remotely, professionals will gain flexibility by studying for one semester online and one semester in-person. In completing the same specialized and in-depth course of study as the full residency Art Business program, the hybrid Art Business program is designed for optimal flexibility, allowing students to gain the expertise and credentials of a Sotheby’s degree over three semesters through a combination of a remote semester, an on-site semester, and an independent capstone project that can be completed from any location in the world. Through the hybrid option, students will have access to the same faculty, academics, resources, and network and will receive the same specialized and in-depth course of study offered in the full-residency MA in Art Business program.
