Arts Leadership + Business Fund

The Arts Leadership and Business (ALB) minor is open to all majors at the University of New Mexico and provides undergraduate and graduate students with hands-on professional development, entrepreneurial studies designed for the creative sector, and foundations in arts administration. Whether students wish to work for arts organizations or become entrepreneurs, the ALB curriculum is designed to accommodate students with diverse career interests.

To meet the objective of supporting economic development, the ALB minor requires a rigorous internship with an arts organization, business, or government agency to gain work training under the mentorship of a professional arts leader. Through course work and internship opportunities, students are better prepared to make informed decisions about career choices in the complex environment of the creative economy.
