THE CREATIVE INDUSTRIES APPROACH
This Master’s degree focuses on a broad curriculum spanning multiple creative industries to help students discover the diversity of the creative sector. This approach lets students fully understand value creation in this area, and provides the opportunity to develop their career from one sector to another. This brings a real meaning and tangible value to their Master of Science.
Words of students:
“you never know what another industry can bring you, they don’t work alone.”;
“you can take a knowledge not only from one sector, but you can use it to feed your imagination”;
“From Music to Fashion, I can see the link now. It is hard when you want to work in Creative Industries to focus on only one sector.”
The French strive to make the most of the management of our artistic, cultural and creative organizations. Indeed, France is unique in the richness of its cultural heritage and dynamic nature of its creative sector.
This country is famous for our "cultural exception" – supporting a wide range of productions. Culture is not considered a mere commodity; it is put on a pedestal. France has a truly unique notion of artistic, cultural and creative goods, and this is apparent to people all over the world. We integrate this French approach to the arts into the way we structure and teach our Arts and culture management course.
« The main asset of this program is that it is in the heart of Paris studying the French market from a creative and managerial perspective. »
STUDENT DIVERSITY AND CREATIVITY
Creativity is born of diversity. The MSc is made up of a group limited to a maximum of 35 students, both French and international (from Canada, China, India, Lebanon, etc.), with very different profiles (both managerial and artistic or other).
“Little class, from different field, culture and nationality. Interesting when we talk about our project. Small class, this is very rich.”, a good program to learn about “manage diversity”.
