Courses that boost career and management skills

During the spring term, Open University students are treated to courses focusing on the artist’s profession as well as the concept and future of sustainability, which are well-suited as further training for professionals in the arts. Those interested in arts management can complete courses such as Sponsoring and Partnership or Copyright and Contract Jurisdiction.

Another useful course is an online course where participants learn about pitching and how to articulate their creative competence as an artist, led by performance coach and alum of Theatre Academy Elsa Ervasti. The course is aimed at degree students of Uniarts Helsinki as well as arts professionals who are completing studies at the Open University. 

You can search for all courses that promote career skills by selecting “Entrepreneurship and career skills” as the field of study in the course calendar.
