School:Northeastern University - Graduate Programs
Faculty:College of Professional Studies
Degree:Certificate; Online
Field of Study:Entrepreneurship/Entrepreneurial Studies
Description:The Graduate Certificate in Cultural Entrepreneurship prepares creative practitioners and culturally-minded innovators to become valuable contributors to the fields of arts and culture – and the community at large. The curriculum offers students the opportunity to identify shortcomings and opportunities for evolution in the arts and cultural sectors; to develop or hone critical, creative practices, leadership acumen, arts administrative and analytical skills; to conceive of and implement programming for community engagement and positive impact; and to bring these skills and frameworks to bear on cultural challenges. Students will learn directly from creative visionaries hailing from a diverse set of arts segments.

Cultural entrepreneurship is a rapidly expanding area embodied by creative practitioners and artistically-minded innovators who devise organizations, initiatives and technologies that build both economic and cultural capital while addressing societal issues. The creation of art and culture is central to the ethos of cultural entrepreneurship, whether the ultimate initiative is in artistic production/promotion, community-building, education, technological innovation or other areas. Some culturally entrepreneurial initiatives today include Robert Redford’s Sundance Institute, the online arts marketplace, the music and education organization Jazz at Lincoln Center, and the line-learning app Shakespeare’s Monologues – all of which have successfully expanded culture while ensuring sustainable social impacts. A budding cultural entrepreneur must be fluent in these kinds of case studies while adopting their best practices.
