About the programme

The Royal Academy of Arts, in partnership with the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands, launched its Executive Master in Cultural Leadership in 2018. This unique MA programme is designed for individuals who want to enrich their understanding of culture and creativity, in order to positively shape the arts and cultural sectors. Applications are open to those from the arts, creative sectors and beyond with prior work experience and an ambition for leadership roles.

Eight intensively taught modules explore subjects such as: critical perspectives in arts and culture; art business; art law; technology and innovation; exhibitions and temporary events and creating and managing private and public collections. A further leadership module focuses on personal development and is tailored to an individual’s ambitions and goals, with key-note lectures from inspirational leaders throughout the year. A dissertation thesis or professional project allows students to engage in real-world scenarios and develop skills that are directly transferable to the workplace.
