Course summary

The MBA in Cultural Heritage Leadership has been specifically designed to enhance the skills and knowledge you need to build or boost your career in the management of heritage organisations. It delivers a challenging and unique occupational education that emphasises reflective and innovative leadership and business decision-making.

Course overview

Industry partners from across the cultural heritage sector have been closely involved in the development of the programme. It has been carefully tailored to meet skills gaps and respond to changes in industry trends.

Our programme combines the study of conventional MBA building blocks - growing participant’s knowledge and understanding of a broad base of entrepreneurial, managerial, human resource, legal and financial skills – with the exploration of specific issues facing heritage at the local, national and global scale. An important focus is the development of new strategies for a changing world - advancing a sustainable heritage which balances the needs of communities and their cultural inheritance with the need to encourage investment and enhance economic growth.

At each stage skills are deepened and reinforced by working closely with industry, engaging with real-world problems, hearing from guest speakers and receiving mentoring from relevant experts working in the field. The programme will also provide valuable opportunities to boost your professional network.

We aim for our graduates to develop the critical academic and business discipline skills which will enable them to analyse and lead complex organisations in a rapidly changing and increasingly international cultural heritage sector.

Who is the course for?

Those employed in the heritage sector and wishing to acquire the business and management skills necessary for advancement to senior management and leadership of heritage organisations.
People employed outside the heritage sector, and with prior relevant business and management experience, seeking to transition to a career in senior management within the heritage sector.
Those in senior management positions within the heritage sector seeking professional development and upskilling to address the pace of change within the sector and more broadly within management systems.

Teaching

This degree is based at our historic university campus in Cirencester. It is taught in partnership with the School of Business and Entrepreneurship with staff from both schools working together to deliver a stimulating curriculum focused on the development of business and managerial skills for the heritage sector. The programme is delivered through a blend of intensive residential courses and on-line learning designed to give you access to engaging multimedia content, online group work, seminars, individual tutorials and mentoring. Assessment is all through project work – there are no traditional examinations.
