The University of Edinburgh Business School is currently accepting applications to its Business in the Arts programme – an eight week programme that provides the opportunity for students from an arts background to engage in business education.

The programme, which commences in June, combines four weeks of academic business study with four weeks interning in a production company or venue. The academic programme covers a range of subjects including marketing, entrepreneurship and strategy, while the internship takes place during the Edinburgh Festival in August.

The application deadline for the programme is 1 April 2014.
