The Wisconsin School of Business at UW-Madison has been building artful leaders for fifty years. The Bolz Center for Arts Administration supports the oldest and longest running graduate program in Arts Administration in the world. Named for the Bolz family in 1993, the generous gift by Robert, Anne, John (Jack), and Marian Bolz, and the Eugenie Mayer Bolz Family Foundation, helped establish the Bolz Center as the leader in arts administration education.
The Bolz Center is committed to training leaders who are curious, life-long learners. Through focused curriculum, discussion, research, and analysis of arts and cultural nonprofit management, the Bolz Center refines our collective understanding of what it means to manage and lead in this challenging, rewarding, and ever-changing field.
The Center also serves as a model for exploration through consulting projects, national initiatives, and experiences that engage our alumni and colleagues around the world.
