Course offer

In 1989, the University of Barcelona launched the first university degree course in Spain dedicated to cultural management, the Master’s degree in Cultural Management. Two years later, the University took part in founding the European Network on cultural management and policy (ENCATC), of which will be president years later, since being aware that the best way to be very local is to take a global perspective. The international dimension together with the commitment to the territory and to the most successful cultural organisations are part of the DNA of the cultural management programme of the UB.

Education, research, seminars and conferences, websites, European projects or publications are nourished by the interaction with students, experts and professors from the five continents. Over these 30 years, around 2.000 students and collaborators have gone through the programme, coming from 70 different countries, from Norway to Australia, from the Philippines to Canada, from Chad to Indonesia and, of course, from Europe and Latin America. The experience gained, the vast network of contacts and the materials developed nurture one the most renowned programme in the field at the international level.
