If you answered any of these questions affirmatively, than Cultural Management is the right choice for you. Cultural managers work in marketing (as marketing managers, sales and marketing coordinators, public relations managers), in planning and fundraising as plan and/or fundraising managers/coordinators, special programmes/projects coordinators, production managers, artist managers/coordinators, stage/technical managers, production planners, HR managers/coordinators, volunteer coordinators, but also as finance managers, auditors, accountants, IT managers, etc.
By completing the professional study of Cultural Management, the students gain knowledge and understanding of different aspects of culture, society and topics such as institution and cultural project management; organisation of institutions and projects in the culture sector; relationship of culture and economy; cultural marketing; IT programmes and other tools required in contemporary cultural management.
The students will be able to apply the knowledge they have gained in designing and implementing business plans, projects and/or programmes in the culture sector; analysis and assessment of business results, decision-making in management and usage of information technologies in business processes. They will also acquire the skills needed for successful communication in business environment and making legal, professional and ethically correct business decisions. Furthermore, they will learn how to present information, ideas and problems, as well as their solutions related to business activities of an institution or implementation of projects in the culture sector. The teachers will help students develop learning skills necessary for lifelong learning and continuation of education.
Our students of Cultural Management are known for their active participation in many creative workshops and projects. They took part in a project presenting the exhibition “Why don’t we know anything about Jelica Jug?” and in the project of the Klis fortress revitalisation. As part of the course Audiovisual activities, students are engaged in special projects, such as directing, shooting and editing movies. They have an opportunity to learn about these processes in a very creative and fun way, with the top experts in creative industries as their mentors.
