Tandem management is a common practice in performing arts organizations. Arts administration education relies on management theory developed from the business sector, where tandem management is uncommon at best, and nearly nonexistent. How can higher education best prepare arts administration students for success in tandem management, when foundational literature does not account for the unique reason of the need for dual managers, such as Artistic and Managing Directors? From the lens of theatre, this paper traces why tandem management has prevailed as the dominating management style in US nonprofit theatre and makes the argument for why simply learning management theory from the business world insufficiently prepares future arts leaders. Finally, this paper proposes strategies to better prepare arts administration students for successful careers in arts upper management.
