Collaborating with the Royal Academy of Arts in London, Maastricht University proudly presents a very special programme: the Executive Master in Cultural Leadership (EMCL). Launched in 2018, this programme is designed for a generation of leaders who want to bring a rich understanding of culture and creativity to their own organisations and aspire to positively shape the arts and cultural sectors by enabling long-term, sustainable and innovative growth.
Over the course of 18 months, students travel between London and Maastricht and follow a carefully curated and diverse set of modules aimed at bringing out these qualities. EMCL students will also be able to attend international art events, such as FRIEZE, TEFAF and BRAFA, gain access to a selection of VIP events and activities.
More information on the programme content, the application procedure, and contact details can be found here at Maastricht University (UMIO).
On April 26th, Professor Dr. Rachel Pownall spoke at the Art Leaders Network, a summit for art innovators and experts organised by The New York Times. She talked about Artists at Auction in 2018 and about the new Executive Master. A summary of the talk can be found in the brochure below.
