As our other study has shown, we are preconditioned to appreciate art; art in the workplace is about more than transforming dull corporate environments. It’s that belief in culture separating us from savages, and an eight-year long, seven country-wide meta-study conducted by University of Toronto researchers offers scientific proof. This is the percentage of final-year students at this university who were “definitely” or “mostly” satisfied with their course.

The Professional Placement module is a core module for those students following a masters programme that incorporates professional placement learning, following completion of 120 credits. It provides you with the opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills to an appropriate working environment, and to develop and enhance key employability skills and subject-specific professional skills in your chosen subject. You may wish to use the placement experience as a platform for your subsequent major project module, and would be expected to use it to help inform your decisions about future careers. This module introduces you to the history of the art market, an interdisciplinary academic discipline of great dynamism.
Students benefit from frequent field trips to art business enterprises and partnership projects with industry. A&B NI’s arts remit covers the performing arts, literature, visual arts and crafts, museums, libraries, heritage and film.

With 25 years of experience driving dynamic collaborations in Northern Ireland, we have extensive expertise in the interface between the arts and business. We invest in research to understand the value of collaboration between commerce and culture and we use that knowledge to identify and promote opportunities for outstanding collaboration. At the heart of our work is the belief that the arts have the power to transform and change lives on both an individual and corporate level.
Initially I found the presentation side daunting, but it’s amazing how quickly you adjust and start to flourish.

It is the only RICS-accredited course for antiques and fine art and you can join RICS as a student member when you enrol.

Central to everything we do is a vision of ‘Engaged Arts’ in which research-based knowledge and expertise is brought to bear on contemporary cultural, political and business life. By the end of the year I’d worked out where I really wanted to be – working for a contemporary art gallery, nurturing and promoting artists. Which is exactly where I am, thanks to the opportunities that opened up to me while I was researching my dissertation.
