MBA in Cultural Management

Paris , Lyon

1 year cycle


The MBA programme condensates the main educational axes of the Cultural Coordination Master’s programme, and is aimed at the acquisition of knowledge to manage artistic and cultural projects in public and private organisations, or to promote one’s project.

Training enables students to acquire knowledge in the cultural field in general, its specific features (customs, law, structure) and practices related to project management.

The programme is conceived to

  • Acquire work, study and thinking methods, and develop personal initiative
  • Understand the professional practices and customs of actors, institutions and enterprises in the cultural sector in their diverse nature
  • Understand the economic, political and societal challenges of culture
  • Familiarise with operational management and project management
  • Understand field-specific legal, administrative and financial tools in the cultural sector

Professionalisation is at the core of the training programme, thus, courses are namely organised in individual and group seminars in project management. Conceiving and developing a professional project is a major element in the evaluation of the knowledge and practices acquired.

Studying through “business workshops” for a better understanding of cultural issues

The MBA Cultural Manager students follow an intensive program that covers all cultural and artistic fields through workshops allowing to carry out watches on all sectors of the cultural professions (audiovisual, live performance, music and heritage).
