“The systematic study on cultural management with various skills and methodology allows me to understand my job working as an art administrator in the Fine Art Institution by then so much better. It also leads me to a broader field of ‘museum’ bringing along further inquiries that had encouraged me to start my own business both in the creative industry and museum studies. The cultural theory and the research on cases all around the world are truly helpful for me as a strategy-maker as well as a pioneer practitioner. ”

The international scope could provide us with tons of opportunities to explore the whole world. In this big family, we can meet with fresh ideas, professional knowledge, interesting arts pieces and excellent peers. For me, the best thing I have received in CM programme is the cute faculties here who are kind, brilliant, helpful and very competent. They are the ones who set great examples for me in my life and, of course, in my later teaching career.”

“As being European, had been studying the MA in Cultural Management in Hong Kong gave me a global perspective about the cultural ecology and facilitated my ability to understand cultural policies and practices in a holistic way. The practicum I’ve done meanwhile my studies in non-profit organisation as Asia Society initiated an interest about strategies of fundraising and as well I required an important knowledge about the structure of a non-profit making project. Hong Kong is a unique place on the Earth. Its shape is always in movement and its content is constructed by multilayers. Understanding the context of Hong Kong through the cultural perspective is a vital experience which shaped me in a unrepeatable way. ”
