Sotheby's Institute of Art-New York and ESCP, two renowned institutions, signed an agreement on May 27, 2020 that will allow several students of the Master in Management Grande Ecole programme to follow a course of study from the start of the 2020 academic year, either as a study abroad exchange student or as a double graduate. ESCP students will carry out their Master 1 year on one of the campuses of the European Business School and their Master 2 in New York. This partnership is the first international dual skills agreement for ESCP in the field of art management.
The MA in Art Business at Sotheby's Institute of Art New York is an all-English programme for students from all over the world that will give ESCP students passionate about the art sector the opportunity to develop their dual skills.
Christine Kuan CEO/Director states,"The hallmark of the Sotheby’s Institute of Art Master’s degree program is international art business and we are honored to partner with ESCP, the leader in business education in Europe since 1819, to create opportunities for global study in one of the most important art capitals of the world—Paris."
"Acquiring Art skills and developing their link to business is important for ESCP. It is one of the fundamental pillars of our international strategy (Art, Business, Cultures, Diplomacy, Engineering) to develop dual competencies. We are very proud of this partnership with Sotheby's Institute of Art," says Professor Léon Laulusa, Executive Vice President for Academic and International Affairs.

"This academic exchange proves once again our ambition for the Master in Management to personalize students’ learning. Following the redesign of the Grande Ecole programme, students can obtain three specialisations in the course of their studies" explains Professor Cécile Kharoubi, Associate Dean of the MiM programme.
Indeed, the Master in Management Grande Ecole programme at ESCP is engaged in a dual profile training approach in order to meet the needs of companies and the increasingly strong demand from students to personalise their individual career paths. MiM students have over 58 specialisations to choose from, all campuses combined, and sometimes offered in partnership with a recognised institution, expert in the targeted field.
