The Rector's Office decides on all issues that are not assigned to other institutional bodies by the Academy Act (Hochschulgesetz). The rector represents the Academy both internally and externally.

The Rector is the supervisor of the artistic-academic staff members. He is responsible for all aspects of the Academy's artistic orientation, including the development and implementation of objectives and prospects of future activities. The Rector is the contact person for sponsors and partners and he is responsible for the Academy's presentation to the public.

As a member of the Rector's Office, the chancellor heads the administration and is the supervisor of the non-academic staff. She is in charge of the Academy's overall budget and represents the rector in legal affairs.
