Our innovative, practice-oriented executive education Arts Management programs for cultural professionals are offered as part-time MAS programs, CAS programs, or continuing education courses (WBK).
Professionalization in the cultural sector and the creative industries is an expression of a changing understanding of culture and reflects the increasing demands on arts and cultural organizations. Cultural managers run cultural operations, develop, produce, mediate, and market cultural programs and events. As part of the creative community, they operate at the interface between culture, politics, business and civil society.
The diverse managerial responsibilities in all areas of culture require sound professional, methodological, and strategic competence. For this reason, the Center for Arts Management offers a Master of Advanced Studies (MAS), various Certificates of Advances Studies (CAS), and several continuing education courses (WBK) in the field of arts management. More information is available at our information events (German).
The MAS in Arts Management consists of four CAS programs and a Master's thesis. It enables participants to take on strategic and operational tasks in the management and leadership of arts and cultural organizations. One focus of this MAS program is the promotion of entrepreneurial action and strategic thinking in the cultural sector.
After completing the CAS in Cultural Politics and Cultural Promotion, you will be able to take on tasks in cultural policy planning and the promotion of cultural institutions competently, independently, and responsibly. The CAS also enables you to act professionally in the political and social environment of cultural promotion. It can be booked individually or as part of the MAS in Arts Management program.
