The Rozsa Foundation has partnered with the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business Executive Education in providing this professional development program for arts managers to help ensure Alberta’s vibrant arts and culture sector continues to enrich us all.

The Rozsa Arts Management Program (RAMP) is a cohort-based certificate program that provides practical customized content taught by Haskayne business faculty and Alberta arts and non-profit professionals.

The Rozsa Arts Management Program (RAMP) has been offered through Executive Education – Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary since 2012.

​2024 – 2025 Program

​The 2024 – 2025 program will be offered with some sessions presented virtually and others presented in person in the City of Calgary. There will be optional gatherings in addition to the content delivered online to allow for networking in person.

Sessions this year will include the following: Indigenous Worldviews, Community Engagement, Marketing & Communications, Fund Development, Strategy Development, Personal Leadership, Team Dynamics, Finance & Budgeting and Arts Advocacy.

Who Will Benefit​

Mid to senior level arts professionals (3+ years of experience) from all arts disciplines and roles including (but not limited to): program administrators, project coordinators, general managers, artistic directors/producers, arts business owners, community builders, arts volunteers and board members.


The Rozsa Arts Management Program (RAMP) helps build managerial excellence and skills in the areas of leadership, team building, reconciliation, arts advocacy, marketing and audience development, fund development, strategic planning, financial literacy, board and staff relations, and community engagement.

​RAMP culminates in a Capstone project designed by the participant (in consultation with a faculty advisor) that addresses a meaningful challenge or opportunity for the participant within their organizational or individual context.

This unique certificate program is designed to address the specific needs of arts managers through content that is both relevant and practical and while providing an important opportunity for peers to network and learn together.

​​Graduates of the program receive a certificate that signifies a commitment to organizational excellence and professional development. On a macro scale, this program aims to increase sector standards by supporting consistency in best practices and providing a transferable framework for excellence in arts management.
