This minor is designed to equip non-business students with the business and management skills to pursue careers in arts and culture, whether in institutions or as sole practitioners. Ottawa, with its world-class festivals and museums, its performing arts community housed in the National Arts Centre and the myriad of galleries and community based arts organizations provides an ideal learning environment for students interested in this field.

Students who meet the required course and elective requirements will receive a Minor in Arts Management designation on their transcript and diploma.
