Scottish Business and the Arts Summer Program
- Innovatively combines academic learning and internship experience with an Edinburgh Festival company during the world's largest arts festival.
- Exciting eight-week program specifically designed to assist non-specialist undergraduates to learn about the operations of business organizations in the arts and culture sector.
- Course credits earned while studying at the University of Edinburgh, one of Europe's most prestigious universities, in collaboration with Internship Scotland.
There are two integral components to this unique program.
- Four-week academic course to build a solid understanding of business principles in context. Seven components: Business Policy and Strategy; Marketing; Human Resource Management; Finance and Accounting; Operations Management; and Enterprise.
- Four-week Internship: placement with a business organization in the arts and culture sector operating during the Edinburgh Festival. Guidance on project definition, an overview of research methodologies and an introduction to literature searches will be given in two research methodologies seminars prior to the beginning of the internship. There will be two components of assessment: 80% Individual written report circa 1,750-2,000 words. 20% Internship attendance and report submitted by internship hosts. The report (worth 80%) will be based upon the work and the organization undertaken by the student and will be linked back to a topic covered as part of the taught course.
