Description

Overview

We expect graduates from the most diverse preliminary education, from the arts and humanities or economics, but we are open to accepting students from other fields too. The vivid community of our students is guaranteed by the different skills and expertise of the members. We expect anyone interested in the management of culture and the creative industries in the most diverse sense. 

The world of culture and art is in need of professionals who can facilitate the birth and realization of progressive and valuable initiatives. Institutions and actors in the world of art need professional leaders, executives, and organizers who are able to coordinate and navigate in the field of art theory but are also aware of how to economically create, run and sustain art and design institutions. Professionals are needed who have practical skills and are able to utilize their knowledge locally and globally. 

Those completing the Art and Design Management MA program become professionals who are capable of developing and managing the product structure of for-profit and non-profit actors in the arts and creative sector, such as museums, arts venues, communication agencies, festival organizing companies, and so on. Professionals graduating from our program are able to build and maintain domestic and international relations in the field and gain extensive knowledge about the contemporary art and design scene and its trends. 

Educational Opportunities

  • Project management and skills focusing on practice orientation 
  • Cooperation techniques 
  • Flexible knowledge: knowledge of the contemporary art and design scene combined with entrepreneurial skills 

Specialization

Specializations are launched only if the minimum number of students required apply. 

Fashion management 

The Fashion Management specialization fully prepares students for integrating into the textile and fashion industry. They become able to understand national and European operational models, to identify the players and they will also gain the professional foundations to find their own evolving and marketable profile. These industry sectors are changing rapidly due to digitalization, innovation, and sustainability. These changes give space to new and exciting tasks and jobs, and our specialization provides students with all the necessary knowledge and skills for these. Self-development, self-awareness, gaining competitive expertise, and providing effective socialization opportunities within the university and with real market player partners (national fashion industry organizations and brands) are equally emphasized.  

The monitoring of global and local trends in market and fashion communication and the development of a confident managerial attitude and portfolio are the main objectives of the specialization. Talent management and the channeling of knowledge into the labor market are of particular importance for the university. Students can make the most of their weekly tutorials either to focus on career planning, internships, job applications, and other professional plans.  

Curatorial studies 

The curatorial specialization allows students to deepen their knowledge of curatorial work and tasks as future design and art managers and endorse themselves in the world of management and curatorship in the fields of design and fine arts. The specialization introduces the functioning of main cultural spaces, institutions, museums, and galleries, the principles of their management principles and the ways curators and exhibition management are involved within these. In addition, students will gain an insight into the content and material backgrounds, structures, and curatorial tasks of projects, with a particular focus on the contemporary art context.  

The excellent teaching staff with practical experience will in turn outline the different aspects of curatorial work. Students will learn both the theoretical and practical aspects of the subject, and gain independent experience through extra programs, excursions, and mentoring. Students will thus gain skills needed not only for curatorial work, but also skills needed for a combination of management and curatorial work. The specialization prepares students to realize and fulfill their individual needs and desires to the extent made possible via our mentoring program.
