An unprecedented, innovative and selective degree that reinforces the pedagogical offer of BSB’s Arts & Cultural Management Center
BSB’S Center for Arts and Cultural Management (CACM) recently launched with the ISBA (Superior Institute of Fine Arts, Besançon) a joint certification programme unique in France in "Contemporary Art and Creation Management". The first selective year group of 12 students (6 from ISBA and 6 from BSB’s MSc Arts & Cultural Management) will benefit from a particularly enriching programme including field trips, in situ case studies, workshops and theoretical knowledge. This degree strengthens the increasingly attractive pedagogical offer in cultural management developed by BSB.
A “Business & Arts” degree delivered by a superior institute of Fine Arts and a business school
This new certification, at Master 2 degree level, is focused on contemporary art and creation from an artistic, managerial and reflexive perspective. It is delivered together by the ISBA and BSB, two training institutions with internationally renowned expertise in their respective fields. The project is supported by the region Bourgogne Franche-Comté.
The first year group of 12 students has been selected amongst the best current elements of the two schools – 6 from the ISBA and 6 from MSc Arts & Cultural Management of BSB – which allows an exceptionally inspiring diversity. From November to April they will benefit from a 5 weeks programme that will take them to Venice and Switzerland for study trips, work on case studies at the heart of the contemporary art market and participate to art workshops.
Nearly 150 students in the ACM programme
BSB's well-known field of expertise, cultural management, is structured since 2017 via the Center for Arts & Cultural Management deployed following three dimensions: teaching, research and cultural entrepreneurship. Thanks to the “Cultural Studies Course”, training in this field will start at the first year of the Master in Management (Master Grande Ecole - MGE) and continue for 3 years.
During the third year the student can continue with a one semester specialization or choose a double-degree: The MSc ACM, an internationally-oriented programme taught in English; or the MS MECIC-Paris, a programme taught in French and designed for a career in France or Europe. These courses enjoy a growing success since they involve this year no less than 150 students
with 24 in MSc ACM, 25 in MS MECIC-Paris and around a hundred in the rest of the “Cultural Studies Course”.
