This class was tough.
I recommend this course because the professor is amazing, and the course material is helpful as well. She understands personal situations that may come up during a semester, and will give you some slack when it comes to classwork. The classwork is also based on applying your knowledge, and not only regurgitating information. This class covered a lot of material, and was definitely more work than other classes, but the knowledge I gained from taking this course was absolutely worth it.
This course gave me insight as to how various arts institutions were organized in financials, personnel management, resource management, with an extra focus on grant writing. Scholastic galleries operate differently from personal, topic focused, and government galleries. Experimental theatres operate differently from scholastic theatres, Broadway theatres, and children's theatres. Be sure to take notes on all definitions pertaining to the course, as some of the midterm and final exams focus on the definitions and groupings of information, such as the 3 levels of management: operational level, middle level, and strategic level.

Advice for students:
The exams were online so be sure you type up your notes for a quick cheat sheet (you can use outside resources like your notes) and stay organized. The final project for this class is a 5 year personal business plan, which you can put in your artist portfolio if you have one. You will learn many valuable things such as scheduling in a professional workplace, how to make budget proposals, grant proposals, and how to deal with personnel management.
