The Institute of Arts Management and Professional Studies (IAMPS) was established to create focused and competent professional graduates with relevant skills to engage effectively and efficiently in their respective professional practices. Our curriculum is grounded in the belief that management functions must support the organization’s mission and the needs of its artists and other stakeholders. Arts managers/leaders need to be versatile.

The IAMPS program’s comprehensive curriculum provides the skills students need not only in their first job but also in a job 20(twenty) years from now. In addition to shaping leadership abilities, our curriculum teaches students how to analyze problems and think strategically.

The arts industry is constantly evolving, and at IAMPS we don’t wait for the change to happen first in order to respond to it….we are proactive in becoming a part of change and inspiring innovation in our arts management field. Our current and relevant curriculum is updated on an ongoing basis to reflect essential industry shifts, and is vetted through national stakeholders as well as national arts leaders who provide valuable feedback on the needs of the arts field. Our students, after the duration of their programme are awarded proficiency certificates as follows: Professional Membership Certificate, Professional Diploma Certificate, Professional Advanced Diploma Certificate and Professional Graduate Diploma Certificate respectively.

Also, our students have an opportunity of being chartered in their chosen fields of studies before conversion examination into any of our partner universities. This is made possible through our partnership with several chartered professional bodies here in Nigeria whom we have merged their professional curriculum with that of our partner universities, thereby given the students an opportunity of becoming professionals in their chosen career. This singular development which indeed makes it a sure bet that our graduates will have dual job opportunities; is already an avenue of poverty crushed out in their lives.
