I don't know what you mean by arts. If you mean all the music , painting, home science and stuff like that and your friend has no passion for art, then the scope is jobs such as call center jobs and clerical jobs.
But then history and economics also come under arts. If that is what you mean by arts, then there is quite some scope. There is Indian Economic service. There is archaelogical survey of India. There are college lecturer jobs in the same field. I think economics and a MBA after that is also a very good combination.
Secondly she belongs to a small town and is planning to move to shift outside.She wants to get into a school with good track record in arts(in terms of quality of education and seriousness of students with regards to their carrier) preferably in north or west india.She is hoping to score well in her tenth which could help her in admission.
