We offer a master degree in Art Logistics at Sotheby's Institute of Art. This pioneering Master’s program provides students with the diverse practical training and theoretical overview necessary to excel in one of the most important career paths in the professional arts world. 


The art world is a vast, complex, and rapidly changing environment where the care, display, and movement of art objects are multi-million dollar issues requiring high levels of thought and expertise. 

Key Features

  • Students in this Art Logistics program at Sotheby's Institute of Art will explore these operational approaches toward art objects and the logistical issues related to moving art from one location to another. 
  • They will become familiar with the power of positive disruption through technology and the growing use of big data and digital applications in business practice. Expertise and a fully-fledged understanding of logistics can lead to careers that form the backbone of the arts industries and the operations of cultural exchange.

Programme Structure

  • The Art Logistics graduate will have an advanced understanding of the fundamental role of operations within the art world, with a confident grasp of areas such as collections management, registrar and inventory systems, signage and labelling, and the legal and ethical issues arising from provenance and conservation considerations.
  • Personal tutors aim to improve the written and oral presentational skills of their tutees, relative to art logistics contexts, and to facilitate opportunities for internship and employment within the art world.
