About the Marks Center

The Alan D. Marks Center for Career Services and Entrepreneurship was established in 2015 by Juilliard trustee Michael E. Marks and his wife, Carole. The center is named after Michael Marks’s brother, the late Alan D. Marks, a Juilliard graduate (BM '71, piano). The mission of the Alan D. Marks Center is to provide a comprehensive integration of entrepreneurial strategies and career services programs into the ecosystem of the Juilliard community, preparing graduates from all three Juilliard divisions (music, dance, and drama) to thrive professionally at the intersection of creativity, technology, and business.
