The Fine Art world is experiencing a wave of innovation with the expansion of cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).

You’ll be able to combine your creative side with core financial and strategic management skills, studying Finance, Art Law, Art History, Compliance and Anti-Money Laundering (AMLA), Marketing, Business Management, Technology, and Fine Art Logistics.
You’ll get first-hand access to some of the most sought-after world experts and industry leaders from companies such as Deloitte, Lalive, Christies, Moma and Mamco.
In this 1.5 year program, you’ll spend the first two semesters studying in-person in Geneva before focusing on your final project either in Geneva or remotely, giving you lots of flexibility.
This is your chance to network with experts and land top positions in the industry. The core faculty will mentor you and open doors, helping you make your mark in a competitive and lucrative field.
WHO IS IT FOR?
“The program is designed for collectors, their private curators, bankers and lawyers who deal with UHNW clients, as well as artists who have learnt the craft and now, wish to learn the trade.” says Geneva Business School program manager Sixtine Crutchfield-Tripet. Or if you already work in finance or law, you’ll learn all about the complex and ever-changing world of Fine Art.
Courses are held in the evenings, so you can study around your full-time job.
You’ll either need to hold a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent, preferably in a related field or demonstrate considerable professional experience. Proof of proficiency in English, and some previous business/professional experience, are also required. Find out more on their website.
