QUALIFICATION AS SPECIFIED IN THE DIPLOMA


1. Art and Design Manager Specialization

DURATION OF THE PROGRAM: 4 semesters

“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.
