DENVER, Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Colorado Business Committee for the Arts' (CBCA) Economic Activity Study recently reported that Colorado has seen a 5% increase in jobs over the past three years among arts, cultural, and scientific organizations. Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design (RMCAD) is responding to Colorado's growth and continued commitment to the arts by cultivating creative thinkers through its new Bachelor of Arts degree program—Business for the Creative Industries.
In response to a growing, globally competitive market where businesses seek candidates who can be creative problem solvers, RMCAD's proprietary degree program blends traditional business school coursework with complementary art and design classes. Coursework includes economics, accounting, branding, and digital marketing.
"We're very excited to offer this type of relevant, rigorous coursework to students," said Dr. Ruth Holden, Chair of Business for the Creative Industries at RMCAD.

This is the perfect academic response to that need."
