The MSc Arts & Cultural Management programme brought me both theoretical and practical knowledge in the cultural field in an international context. Thanks to many professors from different origins and courses of cultural diplomacy, I have a wide point of view of the arts in Europe and around the world. The theory of the first semester allowed me to have a strong cultural baggage and build a critical analysis on the different arts. During the second semester, we had the opportunity to use this theory and put it in practice through different courses and events. Some teachers asked us to develop projects or imagine new ideas, concepts or offers in the cultural field. We also had the great chance to participate in the organization of the performance Festival Excentricités, organized by the Institut des Beaux Arts of Besançon. We took care of the logistic with around 70 artists from all around the world, the communication and the press relation. It gave us a clear insight of how to organize a cultural event and how to deal with the expectations and wishes of both artists and audience.
I now feel confident and ready to start my professional life in the cultural field. In a few years, I plan on opening my own cultural center abroad and I know that I will use the knowledge, experience and contacts I have gained in the MSc.
