From USA, MSc in Arts & Cultural Management - Class of 2014
CEO of Movies in Motion in Paris, France
Although I have an MA in Art History and worked several years in the museum sector (J. Paul Getty Museum, National Portrait Gallery and the Musée du Louvre), I wanted to get a deeper understanding about the business aspect of art.
I chose the PSB Paris School of Business & IESA program as there were very few Master programs that specialized and only focus specifically on Arts. I saw this as a rare opportunity to really hone in on my interests. Furthermore, the school itself is based in Paris, the city of culture. Being in Paris provides so many advantages. As a student in Paris you have at your fingertips the most prestigious action houses, museums, theaters and galleries. The program also offers scenarios in which students learn and meet professionals working in fields of interest, something which has personally helped me in my professional career.
For the past four years I worked as a museum educator at the Musee du Louvre but recently due to my Master experience, I have created my own company based on my final thesis project. The program gave me the tools and contacts to realize my dream of creating a business: Movies in Motion.
