When is Art and Economics right for you?

You're bursting with good ideas and you're entrepreneurial and a real go-getter. And you want to put those qualities to good use, in devising a new festival concept, for example, or setting up a sustainable brand of clothing or arranging marketing campaigns for a big music company. Your curiosity and originality stand you in good stead. You meet difficult projects head-on and look for suitable creative solutions. You also dare to make different, unusual choices. You do so independently, but often in a team with your fellow students, helped by your open attitude, guts and good communication skills.
