Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam
Cultural Economics and Culture Entrepreneurship
In order to understand arts organisations and cultural industries, you need to understand their economic environment. Cultural economics applies economics to arts and culture. It deals with topics such as supply, demand and pricing in the performing and creative arts and cultural heritage, financing of the arts and debates on public subsidy and commercialisation. Culture entrepreneurship is about organisations in the arts and cultural sector and how they manage and market creative processes.
The full-time Master?s is a one-year programme (60 ECTS credits). It is also possible to study part-time over a two-year period, but the programme can only be followed during the day. The academic year runs from September to June. The curriculum is taught in English.
The programme is open for students holding a university Bachelor?s degree Culture Studies. Also students who have a university Bachelor?s degree or its equivalent that fulfills the requirement of a combination of social science and the arts could apply. A basic knowledge of economics and proven ability in English is always essential. Students who have obtained a related Bachelor?s degree from a higher professional education (HBO) rather than a university must first take a one-year transitional programme. The transitional programme is taught partly in Dutch.
The Master?s degree provides a good preparation for careers in management in cultural institutions and companies, such as publishing firms, broadcasting corporations and museums, as well as for policy and management positions in government. In addition, the programme offers sufficient training in research methods to pave the way fora PhD, an academic career or a research post.
