Sotheby's Institute of Art - NY Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (2)
Sotheby's Institute used to have a good reputation for academic preparation and art world connections. In more recent years revenue seems to be the only thing they think about. If you can fog a mirror you will get into the program. All students are told to borrow the maximum amount of money and there is no advisement about repayment and interest rates.
The Sothebys Institute of Art has a prestigious name and an equally large price tag. Admission is incredibly easy and it appears that if you can afford the tuition, you can get in. If you are looking for a challenging selective program, this is not it. Unfortunately, employers know this as well, making the program essentially worthless. Job placement services are non-existent, except into unpaid internships and unpaid gallery assistant jobs. Placement into the Sothebys auction house is implied, but does not actually happen. If you want to spend a lot of money, but not further your career goals at all, this is it. If you want to actually get a job in the art industry, go elsewhere.
