Why The MFA Could Be The New MBA – The Patreon Blog


Artists (and parents), rejoice! MFAs are more valuable than you think.

Code-cranking computer programmers. Contract-crafting lawyers. Number-crunching Wall Street analysts. That’s what our parents encouraged us to become when we grew up. Study something useful, they begged, like business. Get your MBA. Whatever you do, don’t waste your time on art.

Fear not, you artsy-types; there’s good news for you and your parents.

Although a U.S. News analysis of the Fortune 500 CEOs list shows that two hundred out of the five hundred executives hold MBAs, the business world is opening up for those who’ve always dreamt of getting an MFA.
