Lessons will start on March 4, 2015 and last till November 27, 2015 at the main building of the Faculty of Economics and Management of the University of Ferrara; updated information will soon be published on this webpage.


MuSeC combines three different learning experiences and activities:


1. class sessions on the following subjects: Economics of Culture; Management of Cultural Heritage; Management of Cultural Organizations; Human Resources Management; Urban and Landscape Policies; Cultural Project Management and Strategy; Cultural Industries and Markets. Class sessions are taught by professors either from the University of Ferrara or from international universities (UK, Germany, France, Australia, Japan and Spain);


2. case-study-sessions, aimed at analyzing the cases of the cultural institutions of important Italian art cities (Florence, Venice, Bologna and Ferrara). A foreign case study will be analyzed.


3. team-working/laboratory sessions, where students will work closely with others in teams of six or seven (designed to ensure a diverse mix of international, cultural, functional and industry experience) learning how to group-workon a wide variety of subjects including the analysis of the cultural institutions visited during the case-study sessions. At the end of each session the teams will present a project; the best projects will be presented to the above mentioned cultural institutions.


Students must attend at least 75% of the lessons. The final certification corresponds to 60 CFU.


During the course, case studies of important cultural institutions will be analyzed, also through site visits (the Venues of Florence, Venice, Ferrara, Bologna will be studied).


Following the numerous requests made by our applicants, language support for students who are not English native speakers will be provided throughout the master (English language seminars, language support during  lessons and laboratories, etc…).
