Management of Cultural Assets and Activities (MaBAC)


Francesco Casarin
Ca' Foscari University of Venice



The double Specialist Master's Programme in Management of Cultural Assets and Activities was created by Ca' Foscari University of Venice and ECSCP Europe with the aim of training professionals capable of developing and managing new culture and arts-based businesses thanks to innovative teaching methods and the managerial instruments provided by the professors and international professionals on the teaching staff.

The partnership between Ca' Foscari and ESCP Europe gives graduates attending this Master's course the opportunity to obtain two Master's degrees from the two institutions; to access the European labour market; to experience different teaching and training methods in two world capitals of culture; and to share the know-how of a teaching staff with professors from both institutions and professional experts.

Professional profiles

The objective is to train experts in the management of artistic and cultural processes both at national and international level and with specific competencies in managing complex cultural projects. These professionals will be equipped to work for cultural institutions and organisations, such as museums, cultural events management companies, publishing groups, professions directly or indirectly linked to cultural projects, and public administrations at national or local level.

Graduates will be qualified for high level managerial positions and will have the competencies to identify and manage tangible and intangible resources, establish partnership agreements and manage projects with an international scope.
