- 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.
