    I was not aware that Sotheby's do not only sell art, but give also UK-accredited courses which are a little expensive by European standards, but probably interesting for someone here:

    Is this more for professional work, or academic/teaching, or either?

    ..uh, dunno. The accredited courses seem to be for professional development, but being a lowbrow, I can't tell for sure...

    I'd guess that if YOU end up knowing any significant part of what SOTHEBY's knows, you should be able to figure a way of making considerable money from that knowledge! Of course, I'm not discounting the possibility of art lovers earning one of the master's degrees just because it's their passion. I think Sotheby's have figured out the sales strategy for these offerings as well as they do for everything else they sell.

    I see the Sotheby's brand is on the real estate business. A nice old house up the street from me was just sold. The sign was from Sotheby's International Realty. They probably have (wisely) developed it as a franchise. Good luck to them. Nice sign - of course. :)

    They should watch carefully, though. I wouldn't want to see the Sotheby's name splattered on every internet ad and billboard, until it becomes another Burberry or Louis Vuitton - unrecognizably remote from its original status.

    What’s next? An Antiques Roadshow Titulo Propio?

    Have you not seen their real estate division? They splatter that name in every ad, magazine, and billboard imaginable!
