    This training is accessible to candidates in initial training who have validated a Licence Degree in law-economics or management or a diploma equivalent to the Licence Degree in specialized cultural or artistic training, as well as to candidates in continuing training, professionals in the cultural sector wishing to perfect their experience in the managerial and legal fields or professionals in project or service management, wishing to redirect their activities towards the cultural and creative sector.

  • Skills

    At the end of the MDOMC course, the graduate will have acquired the following skills:

  • Organization of the training

    Students alternate every month for about three weeks in the partner structures, and one week in class. This rhythm has been established in consultation with the professional partners, in order to correspond as closely as possible to the real working rhythm of the cultural structures.

    The realization of a cultural project, the obligatory field experience (2 to 6 months long internship or apprenticeship and/or professionalization) and the formalization of a portfolio of skills, are central to the MDOMC course. They are accompanied by a set of courses (methodology and support) aimed at strengthening the operational skills and professional integration of graduates.

    This Master's Degree applies a training course in the Competency-Based Approach. It puts forward a concrete approach to the problems that graduates will be confronted with, both in the context of their learning missions and as future actors in the cultural sector. This approach is therefore based on numerous case studies and projects, which the students must carry out throughout the year, in fields covering the widest possible spectrum of activities: Marketing, Communication, Budget, Law, Human Resources, Cultural Project Development, etc. 

    A training course that mixes theory and practice: the majority of courses are given by a teaching-research pair and professionals from the sector. Personalized support towards the first job: Students are individually accompanied during the two years of training to facilitate their transition to the professional world (skills assessment, acquisition of a portfolio of "artistic, cultural and creative manager" skills, definition of the professional project, HR coaching "cv and motivation interview", etc.).
