Ms. Art World
In my past year rotating through the various specialist and business development departments at the world’s leading auction house, I’ve learned that there are very few MBA’s in the art world. An MBA would bolster my analytical framework and expand my network beyond the arts to help lead the auction world towards greater sustainability and growth.

Big Life Wins:
I was selected as one of ten trainees out of an applicant pool of over 1,000 international candidates for my employer’s graduate training program. It is the only program of its kind in our industry and is a major life win for me.
Post MBA Goal:
I’d like to transition to the business management side of the auction world, helping make smarter, more data-driven, short-term decisions to ultimately define future goals for auction houses in a manner that reflects the progressive nature of the very art they sell.
