Managing Art and Cultural Heritage in Global Markets offers the unique opportunity to study at five European universities over two years and gain a multiple masters degree, recognised by the European Commission as an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master (EMJM). Taught by experts in key aspects of collections history, the art market, art and heritage law and cultural heritage management and economics, the course is intended for students wishing to enter careers such as managers, educators, curators, or marketing consultants in museum / historic site / private foundations; executives in cultural tourism; NGO or governmental executives in heritage affairs; project officers for international organizations like Unesco; exhibition developers; managers of auction house, museum services, private client services in auction houses or art consultancies.
The course offers an integrated, international and coherent programme of study that explores the social, historical, cultural and physical contexts of past, present and future cultural sites as well as critical methodologies and professional management skills in finance, law, fund-raising, cultural tourism and project creation and execution. Students explore the role of the art market in creating collections, the roles of curators and national bodies in the maintenance of cultural institutions, the support and promotion of contemporary artists, the relationships between art and cultural institutions with local and global audiences. They examine the practical, legal and ethical implications of business models for art and cultural heritage, and their sustainability within the marketplace, including emerging markets.
