Assistant Professor of Arts Management and Entrepreneurship at The New School’s College of Performing Arts

The College of Performing Arts (CoPA) at The New School invites applications for an Assistant Professor of Arts Management and Entrepreneurship at 50% proportional full time faculty on a Renewable Term Appointment to begin July 1, 2017. This faculty position plays a key role in the implementation and development of a new Master of Arts Management and Entrepreneurship degree, which is also available in combination with CoPA undergraduate performance degrees so that both degrees can be completed in five years (BM or BFA plus MA).

Officially launching in the fall of 2017, the Master of Arts Management and Entrepreneurship program is one of the first graduate programs designed specifically to help performing artists develop the critical skill sets they need to excel as independent artists, reinvent existing cultural organizations, and launch their own arts-related enterprises. The program is provided in partnership with the Non-Profit Management program at The New School’s Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy. About one-third of the course work comes from Milano non-profit management courses. Additional information about the program, including the curriculum can be found at

Faculty duties include teaching up to two courses at the graduate level per academic year, conducting active research, collaborating with relevant course and curriculum development, mentoring part-time faculty and students, as well as providing service to the program, college, and the university.

The ideal candidate will be an arts management professional with experience in arts industry management as well a professional performance background. Considering the centrality of entrepreneurship within this program, experience and interest in the creation of new arts business ventures is a plus. A related Master’s degree and minimum of three years of executive level management in the arts management field or equivalent experience are required. Evidence of university-level teaching excellence preferred.

The New School is committed to actively recruiting from a diverse pool of applicants. We encourage candidates from groups underrepresented in US higher education to apply.

The New School does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, creed, sex or gender (including gender identity and expression), pregnancy, sexual orientation, religion, religious practices, mental or physical disability, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, veteran status, marital or partnership status, or any other legally protected status.

The position will begin on July 1, 2017 with an initial three-year renewable term appointment and the possibility of renewal following a successful reappointment review. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.

About The New School
Imagine a university where scholars, artists, and designers find the support they need to challenge convention and fearlessly create positive change in the world. Imagine a community where walls between disciplines are dissolved, so journalists collaborate with designers, architects with social researchers, media specialists with activists, poets with musicians. Imagine an intellectual and creative haven that never has and never will settle for status quo. In 1919, a few great minds imagined a school that would rethink the purpose of higher learning. The New School was the result. Today, it is the only comprehensive university housing a world-famous design school, a premier liberal arts college, a renowned performing arts college, a legendary social research school, and many more schools and programs designed for students of every age and stage of life. No other university offers a more creatively inspired, rigorously relevant education. Their academic centers in New York City, Paris, Shanghai, and Mumbai offer more than 10,000 students more than 135 undergraduate and graduate degree programs
