Study Plan instructions: Arts Management, Society and Creative Entrepreneurship

This is how you make a Study Plan for your exchange application.

Arts Management, Society and Creative Entrepreneurship studies in Sibelius Academy

The Arts Management, Society and Creative Entrepreneurship is a 2-year program, and it is organized in four semesters (two years). The first three consist of lecturing on different major and elective subjects and the during fourth (last one) we only have a limited number of elective courses as this particular semester is dedicated to writing the Master thesis and mentoring sessions (one to one) with the teacher.

How do I get started?

Start planning your Study Plan by looking into your main subject/instrument curriculum here: Under Sibelius Academy, you can also find the section “Courses for exchange students”, from which you can find suitable elective courses from other main subjects’ curricula and studies open for all students regardless of department (e.g. language studies, performance studies, physical education).

Make sure you include the courses and credits required as compulsory by your home institution.

In case you are accepted as an exchange student, you will need to start a Learning Agreement according to your home institution’s guidelines. The study coordinator and head of department of Arts Management, Society and Creative Entrepreneurship will check your Learning Agreement and if needed will suggest changes to the courses before approving your LA. When you arrive to Sibelius Academy it is still possible to make some small changes to the LA. You’ll have a study planning session remotely with the Study Coordinator of Arts Management already before you arrive to Sibelius Academy. More can be organized later if needed.
