Program description - FlexMaster Kulturmanagement

Step by step to the Master Kulturmanagement

Studying the FlexMaster Kulturmanagement, you can develop your individual study concept tailored to your own interests and time available. After having successfully completed a module from the curriculum of the Master Kulturmanagement (M.A.), students receive a certificate of the Hochschule Bremen and 6 ECTS. When deciding to enrol for the part-time Master Kulturmanagement later on, the already completed modules will be credited by the graduate centre. Regarding the content of teaching, lecturers of the FlexMaster Kulturmanagement teach up-to-date and application-driven business knowledge to their students. Apart from that, participants of this Flex program deal in a scientifically founded and practice-oriented way with those tasks cultural managers are confronted with. By doing this, tools needed in the cultural sector for strategic planning, management and leadership will be learned. The seminars are conducted in German and generally take place in classroom on Friday evening and Saturday all day at the IGC.


The FlexMaster program leaves room for flexibility when planning the course of your studies and allows compatibility of job - family - education.“
