Arts Management Alumni Network

The BW Arts Management Alumni Network includes graduates of the Arts Management Program (now a full-fledged Arts Management and Entrepreneurship major) as well as other alumni now working in the arts and nonprofit sectors, regardless of their program of study while at BW.  The network also welcomes community partners that support arts management at BW by hosting internships and other educational opportunities for students.

This group, launched in 2012, strives to help Baldwin Wallace alumni working in the non-profit or arts management field continue their commitment to professional growth in the arts.  The group also encourages continued service to current BW students interested in entering the arts management field.  For years, BW arts management graduates have maintained close ties to campus, supporting students in a variety of meaningful ways.  In today's competitive economy, these ties are important to sustain for the next generation of arts managers.

BW's Arts Management Program expanded to a first-of-its kind Arts Management and Entrepreneurship major in the fall of 2015. With this exciting development, a strong network of alumni involvement is more important than ever.  We welcome input from not only arts management graduates but also professionals in the arts community who are willing to serve as connectors to internship and job opportunities in the field. 

Where are arts management alumni now?

Alumni of the Arts Management Program are making an impact nationwide in a wide variety of arts and nonprofit organizations, applying their creative problem-solving skills and management acumen to advance many important missions.
