Master of Arts in Cultural Management

Master of Arts in Cultural Management - Introduction


The MACM programme is the leading MA programme in cultural management in Hong Kong. Through an open, flexible, theoretically grounded curriculum including practical fieldwork experience, students are taught to meet the challenging demands of our ever-changing cultural industries. A core value of the MACM Programme is its recognition of cultural management as more than just technical studies in management. It is an act of cultural mediation that touches on issues such as professional ethics, cultural rights, cultural identity, and the social dynamics within cultural representation. Graduates from the Programme will become more than managers. They become cultural mediators who bridge the art world and the public life of our local communities. Graduates learn to interpret, define, communicate and advocate for the dignity, values and cultural rights of all members of society.
