Arts management as an undergraduate major

Slightly unrelated but don't know where else I can put this except for all the art subforums. I'm thinking of pursuing an arts management major however I don't know how useful it really is, as in, would it really help me land a job in one of the arts institutes or not? (Sorry to sound pragmatic and cynical here!) I'm actually a musician, but I love things arts related, including fine art and theatre and musicals, so I think I might really enjoy studying arts management, but I just want some opinions from you well-informed people here. Would also like suggestions of which colleges have good arts management courses (or related courses.) Thank you!

Edit: I'm also aware that it's usually provided as a Masters program. If so, what are related undergrad programs?

    I can think of two programs I know of: an arts administration degree at Butler University, and an Entertainment Business degree at Oklahoma City University. I know other programs as an undergrad do exists, but I don't know locations off the top of my head. I hope this helps somewhat!
