The study programme in a nutshell
Ranked first in the world according to Eduniversal Ranking Best Masters, Cultural Economics and Entrepreneurship proposes a double perspective: cultural economics and cultural entrepreneurship. We harness cultural economics and cultural entrepreneurship perspectives to unravel, articulate, realise, and assess the practices and values of culture for different stakeholders, from artists and creative producers, to government, cultural organisations, and citizens. In this way we foster the role of the cultural and creative sector in society. We put a great emphasis on cutting-edge theory, original empirical research, and connection to the cultural and creative sectors.
During this master specialisation, you will focus on challenges the cultural and creative industries face today and in the near future. You will acquire the knowledge and skills to identify, frame and address these challenges using a systemic approach and international perspective. Furthermore, the programme offers a lot of freedom for exploring current topics and first-hand experience with entrepreneurial projects.
