Title: Analysing the successes of its structure within and beyond

"This thesis begins by introducing and highlighting the importance of arts management in the context of the"
"international and local industries. Specifically, it will chart the progress and development of arts management from a"
"traditional management concept to a more defined and arts-centric system of management. In Chapter 2, it will"investigate the specific roles needed for an arts manager and whether those roles were moulded out of the demands of"
"the arts industry. It will compare and contrast the different styles of arts management with the current system in"Singapore. The methods of research will also be thoroughly examined in Chapter 3."
"At a macro level, arts managers exist within a similar fold with traditional managers and compete for the same socio-"
"economic supply. Arts management covers a wide breadth of skills and talents which encompasses, and at times"
"eclipses, traditional management concepts. At a micro level, arts managers possess more arts-centric skills and"knowledge which enhance their capabilities to lead in the creative industries. The necessity and relevance of "artsmanagement will be questioned and research into its successes will be conducted."
In Chapter 4, the core structure of the arts management programme in LASALLE will be analysed vis-à-vis responses from graduates and the empirical data obtained. To account for the large number of graduates pooled from various batches, a neutral standpoint is achieved by posing similar questions and only tailoring the follow-up questions based on the responses. This semi-structured research structure coupled with an analytical mount ensures that the raw data is compiled in a systematic manner. Based on the literature available, a thorough analysis of the findings can be conducted while establishing any recurring patterns or trends. This thesis will also heavily refer to Chong’s theory of arts management (Chong, Arts Management) while juxtaposing it with other significant literature like Arts Management: A Practical Guide (Radbourne and Fraser), Management and the Arts (Byrnes) and the various works of Dr. Ruth Bereson (Bereson, Why Manage the Arts?). This will serve as a structural backdrop for recommendations in Chapter 5.
