Partnership with Tsinghua University

Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Tsinghua University School of Economics & Management (Tsinghua SEM), and Tsinghua University Academy of Arts & Design (Tsinghua AAD) will combine their academic resources and distinguished faculties of art-market practitioners, business professionals, economists, artists and scholars to offer courses, degrees and professional certificates that integrate graduate-level business and finance studies with specialized knowledge of art and its markets.

6-Week New Global Art Markets and Connoisseurship Programme

Scheduled to launch in the fall of 2014, a six-week cross continent field study program dedicated to New Global Art Markets and Connoisseurship will lead to a professional certificate. It will span the course of one year and will be delivered through intensive week-long residencies in major art centers around the world: Beijing, London, New York, Los Angeles and Hong Kong, among others. This program is designed for students, professionals and art collectors who wish to strengthen their knowledge of the international art world by working with top practitioners to understand how the markets operate in important economic and historical segments. Each week is dedicated to key principles of the art business, including connoisseurship and market trends in the context of regional differences, and each city provides real-world experience and exposure to new companies, specialized markets and professional networks. Participants will have privileged access to some of the world’s finest collections and works of art, as well as visits to the studios, galleries and other institutions that define much of today’s art activity.
