    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. Accompaniment 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.).
