Critical Issues for Research in Arts Management
Critical Issues for Research in Arts Management
To develop a more respectable image as a field of inquiry and employment, Dorn (1992) warned that Arts Management needed to create a body of knowledge through scholarly research. To accomplish Dorn’s goal, Arts Management should address three critical issues: (1) the need to establish a discipline and profession specific research agenda, (2) faculty preparedness to conduct and supervise research, and (3) student education in research, to guide the development of Research. Addressing these three issues will ensure Arts Management’s ability to benefit from and protect its intellectual capital while developing a reputation as a viable academic discipline and profession., Keywords: Arts Management education, Arts Management research, Discipline building, Research agenda, Systematic review, Publication Note: Publisher's Version also available at http://www.encatc.org/en/publications/online-journal/, Preferred Citation: Cuyler, A.

By conducting an ordinal logistic regression analysis and a multiple regression analysis, the researcher determined that gender has an effect on arts managers’ managerial level, and in addition to disability has an effect on arts managers’ salary.

From the Student Side of the Ivory Tower
As internships play a critical role in arts and cultural management curricula, cultural organizations and academic programs need to remain aware of students' expectations of their internships. This cross-sectional international descriptive study addressed the following research question: What expectations do arts and cultural management students have of their internships? The study also investigated whether and how students' expectations differ across enrolment status and gender. The results have implications for how cultural organizations design and manage internships as well as how academic programs in arts and cultural management evaluate learning gained through internships, Publication Note: Publisher's version also available at http://search.proquest.com/docview/1685001547/fulltextPDF/388569CBBD2F470EPQ/1?accountid=4840, Preferred Citation: Cuyler, A.

Participant-Oriented Evaluative Case Study of the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts Internship Program
For more than forty years, the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts has professionally prepared aspiring arts managers through its premier internship program.
