Overview

“If I could give an advice to my 17-year- old self, I’d tell him to dream as big as he can, only the sky is the limit”

Juan Carlos from Venezuela

THIS IS FOR YOU IF…

… you would like to be a cultural manager, if you are independent if you have entrepreneurship affinity, and good organizational skills and if you have a good style both in writing and speaking.

We expect both graduates from art and design programs and design and art theory students. Also, we would love you in our program if you are coming from the field of economics or technology, but interested in the management of businesses in the field of culture.


Design in a broader sense – meaning all creative solutions as a whole – is indispensable in today’s global economics. The design and creative thinking of the global product structure and national and international relations of for-profit and non-profit actors of the art sector require professionals who are familiar with contemporary social and art theories, design thinking, art and design scenes and trends all over the world.

MAIN TOPICS

Contemporary art theory and history, contemporary design, creative industry, creative thinking, critical culture education, curation, other arts (dance, theatre, music, puppet etc.)



“During my internship at Metropolitan I decided to apply for a Design and Art Management MA, to become someone who can function as a bridge between the market and the artist. I consider the work of those very important who support artists and designers with their professional knowledge.” Bernadett Káldi, Graduate Student

“To create pieces of art, to humanize our material world… is merely a noble task. It is even harder to create the circumstances that will allow artists to get their work and values publicized – from the workshops and studios to the people. This is a profession that needs creativity and wit, meanwhile, its significance is getting more and more important.”
József Vadas CSc, PhD, Habil.
