Arts and Cultural Management
ATTENTION: This study program can no longer be chosen. In 2018, it has been substituted by the program Management with its four specializations Marketing, Media Communication, Arts & Entertainment and Event.
I love all those who walk a different path. Who can turn the world upside down and make us reconsider what we already know, or simply fascinate us with their thinking. I love the people who can inspire and enrich us with their music, their painting or their writing. Maybe there's a bit of artist hidden inside me. But more than that there's a drive in me to that wants to promote art and culture in a world where culture and the economy are ever more interconnected.
That's why I chose a degree course in Arts and Cultural Management at Karlshochschule. I can learn how culture actually works, which people and organizations are involved, and what makes us recognize something as culture or art. As I study I'll get to know the movers and shakers in the cultural sector and will preparing for the future, possibly as the organizer of cultural events in a museum or as a cultural manager in an agency. There are so many possibilities I can imagine I will be studying my passion at Karlshochschule.
