Partnership with Peirce College
The University of the Arts and Peirce College have formed a strategic educational partnership to add greater depth to each school's educational offerings and to better prepare students for the current job market. Peirce College, a leader in career-related education for 148 years – and conveniently located directly across the street from UArts – offers a range of management, marketing and other courses for UArts students.
Creative businesses have become a major driver of the economy, both in the Philadelphia region and nationwide. Artists and designers are increasingly building careers as creative entrepreneurs, and business leaders see more and more opportunity in the arts fields. This partnership with Peirce College helps UArts students develop the skills necessary to succeed in the creative economy.
