News & Events

  • The MSc in Art, Law and Business was an ideal programme for me to take as I was looking to change careers and Christie’s Education was the perfect decision; within 14 months I was able to learn about the current art market, art law and art theory. The lectures, visits to art fairs, travels and relationships that I built all prepared me for my current position.

  • The MSc programme provided a great overview of the current developments in the commercial art sector, as well as an overview of art since 1900. The law component was very interesting and the study trips to Sydney, Istanbul and many international art fairs provided an overview of the artists and institutions in the region.
