Back to Executive Education


Sotheby’s Institute of Art offers a multi-city bilingual executive education curriculum for private collectors and art professionals who wish to strengthen their knowledge of art, collecting strategies and arts management. Each module of the Global Art Markets, Collecting and Connoisseurship program consists of intensive week-long residencies in major art centres around the world. The program highlights key aspects of the art market and provides participants with invaluable insight, understanding of artistic and market trends, and legal frameworks within the context of each global marketplace. Lectures and guided visits are led by leading faculty and experts in the field, and each module provides a hands-on experience and an exposure to the inner-workings of the market as well as knowledge of art, and professional networks. In addition, the Executive Program offers privileged access to some of the world’s finest collections and works of art, private visits to studios, galleries and other institutions that define much of the art scene today. Alongside top practitioners in the field, participants can gain a deep understanding of the art world in each city visited.
