The international MFA program allows artists to spend two years of intense investigation, by developing a project in a critical, pre-professional environment.

There are no precise professional analogies inherent in the course of studies, since a career as an independent artist is inherently unconventional. Nevertheless the MFA degree opens a wide range of higher-level positions within institutions of the art world. It is essential for pursuing a career in academia or teaching at university level.

A MFA degree makes its recipient eligible for post-graduate or PHD programs; and it is certainly helpful when applying to residency programs for artists or for internships at art instituions.
