The Association of Arts Administration Educators (AAAE) is a membership organization representing the world’s leading graduate and undergraduate arts administration programs – all training and equipping students earning an arts administration degree in arts leadership, management, entrepreneurship, cultural policy, and more.

Arts Administration is a field of study that provides graduates with the tools to create, develop, facilitate and evaluate arts and cultural programs and organizations. The field was established in response to an ever-growing demand for leadership and organizational acumen within arts and cultural organizations. Arts administrators bridge the artistic world and creative industries with applied managerial, financial, and programmatic skills.
