Drawing on its long experience of object-based teaching, Christie’s Education has developed an international team of dedicated art-world experts who are committed to educating and inspiring the next generation of art-world professionals to combine art theories with art-world practices such as art appreciation and art management.

Artworks are often scarce and non-renewable, and an increase in their value can therefore be expected with the growth of economic aggregate over time. By choosing this alternative investment form, investors can not only gain investment returns, but can disperse relevant risks and improve the portfolio allocation efficiency in an effective manner. Furthermore, Art investments are a combination of business and pleasure through which investors may sharpen their art appreciation competency, and have their personal dignity, reputation and image elevated.
CEIBS takes the lead in offering art education by partnering with the world top auction giant Christie's to jointly launch “The Global Art Market: Artwork Collection & Investment” Programme.

It also will include in-depth visits to museums, artist studios and private collection rooms under the guide of senior appraisers or lecturers from the museums. While casting light on the status quo of the auction industry and the art market from multiple perspectives, the programme will provide participants with an opportunity to appraise some real auction items and sharpen their understanding about the operation and management of artwork market.
