The Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and the ESCP Europe have created a Dual Master’s in Management of Cultural Assets and Activities (MaBAC) to train professionals who can submit and manage new businesses relating to arts and culture, by providing them with innovative teaching and a combination of experience and managerial tools from teachers and professionals of international standing.

Ca’ Foscari and ESCP Europe are jointly offering the opportunity to: gain two Master’s qualifications from the two institutions on just one course; access the European labour market; experience teaching and training in two world capitals of culture; and share the experience of teaching staff consisting of academics from both institutions and professional experts.
