Experience, alongside education, forms a foundation of every professional qualification. Only therein a social competence that appears to be indispensable for the leadership of cultural institutions can ripen. Rather than specializing on transfer of specific knowledge, the programme puts the questions of leadership and responsibility in the center.
Cultural leadership tasks are complex. In times of shrinking financial resources living up to the highest quality demands calls for a professional expertise that cannot be acquired incidentally.
The top-class faculty is only one part of the worldwide networks to which the Zurich programme gives access. The internships open the doors to prestigious cultural institutions and renowned business corporations.
