Culture and heritage are the sinews of a society. In an era marked by rapid change and technologies that open up new possibilities, ambitious and critical cultural leaders are required to foster the cultural core of a sustainable society.

Culture defines humanity. Managing the valuation and transmission of culture through policy, entrepreneurship, and education across generations is therefore a key responsibility for a sustainable society. In our modern society, culture has to be negotiated as it is shaped by digitisation and new media, ethnic and cultural diversity, changing audiences and economic circumstances, dwindling public funds, and a loss of shared historical awareness. The mission of the Master's track Cultural Leadership is to educate future leaders in the cultural domain, both national and international, enabling them to carry culture forward in a critical, sustainable, and creative manner. The programme equips students with essential scholarly expertise and analytical and strategic skills.

The Master's track Cultural Leadership:

* is innovative: it prepares master students for a cultural field which quickly changes due to technological, pedagogical, political, and societal developments. It offers new methods and tools (e.g., hands-on history, digital curating) to help rethink the cultural field.

* has a dual character: it combines theoretical and object-oriented courses and a thesis with a six months research traineeship.

* has a well-defined aim: to equip students with the knowledge and skills to develop an inspiring, responsible, and realistic vision on how we can carry culture into the future.
