Designed for those who have a strong academic or professional interest in the art or luxury markets, the Online Accredited Courses cover 12 weeks of intensive remote learning. Art & Business and Art of Luxury welcome a range of students, from undergraduates to career professionals looking to broaden or deepen their knowledge. These immersive and academically rigorous courses provide students with a well-rounded learning experience — combining the practicalities of the business world with the intricacies of art— through the cross-disciplinary study of art business or art and luxury.
Taught by faculty at the London Institute, the courses present students with a global network of speakers from different sectors from the international art world and luxury industry. These professional contacts will allow students to create and enhance connections that will be vital for the next step in their career.
Led by faculty and key figures in their field, classes involve a combination of live lectures, seminars, interactive workshops, and virtual visits to museums, gallery spaces, art foundations, and art fairs. The student experience is supplemented by expert panels, one-to-one tutorials with faculty, as well as strong engagement with our extensive alumni network and various departments at the Institute, including careers and the library.
The remote learning syllabus lends itself to participation from across the globe, featuring sessions that can be accessed at any time from our online archive to provide students with the flexibility to learn at their own pace. Developing covetable critical thinking and transferable global teamwork skills, students of these online courses will gain tools and experiences to align themselves with the art and luxury industries in a rapidly evolving world.
Our courses are validated by The University of Manchester, part of the esteemed Russell Group of world class, research-intensive universities.
