Kristen Gordon From USA, MBA in Arts & Cultural Management - Class of 2014 CEO of Movies in Motion in Paris, France
IESA Alumna testimonial Kristen-Gordon"I worked several years in the museum sector (the Musée du Louvre, National Portrait Gallery and J. Paul Getty Museum) and I have an MA in Art History. However I wanted to get a deeper understanding about the business aspect of art.

I Chose the IESA Art Market School and PSB paris school of business program as there were few Master programs that focus specifically on Arts Management. It was an opportunity for me to really hone in on my interest.

Moreover, PSB - Paris School of business and IESA Arts Market school  are located in the heart Paris. As a student, when you live in Paris you many advantages; visit museums, theaters, galleries and have at our fingertips the most prestigious auction houses. Meet professionals working in fields that interest me, something which has personally helped me in my professional career. The MA in Arts & Cultural Managment also offers scenarios in which students learn alongside professionals.

For the past four years, I worked at the Musee du Louvre as a museum educator. However, based on my final thesis project, I have created my own company due to my Master experience. I created a business through the program who gave me the tools and contacts to realize my dream.
