MA in Art and Design Management



What will I learn?

Design in a broader sense – meaning all creative solutions as a whole- is indispensable in today’s global economics. The development & management of product structure and national and international relations of for-profit and non-profit actors of the art sector require professionals who are familiar with contemporary design, art scenes and trends.

- cooperation techniques

- flexible knowledge: knowledge on the contemporary art and design scene combined with entrepreneurial skills


First year:

- foundation subjects- mostly in theory

- contemporary art and design scene, institutional system

- insight in various projects (expos, festivals design studios)

Second year:

Contemporary art theory and history, contemporary design, creative industry, creative thinking, critical culture education, curation, other arts (dance, theatre, music, puppet etc.)
