Course summary

MA Creative and Cultural Leadership is a flexible work-based programme, designed for transformative emerging leaders and influencers committed to equity, diversity and inclusivity in the arts, heritage, cultural and creative industries. As a creative, cultural or heritage professional, you’ll develop your transformational leadership, addressing complex business challenges. Designed in collaboration with the Bristol Business School and external partners, the programme offers you interdisciplinary expertise in Creative and Cultural Industries and Business. You’ll develop practical, work-based learning aimed to address sector skills gaps, such as leadership and management, business development and enterprise and entrepreneurship. Increasingly, creative and cultural leadership takes place outside larger arts organisations, such as museums, galleries, libraries and archives, as well as smaller organisations. These include independent agencies, studios, production companies, performance groups, theatre companies, festivals and social enterprises. This 12-month programme combines online learning with in-person teaching blocks, so you can study around your work and other commitments. You’ll learn new, authentic approaches to collaborative leadership development during rapidly changing times, with an emphasis on equality, diversity and inclusivity. This inclusive course is designed for graduates across a range of disciplines, from business and management to arts and humanities. Usually applicants will have an undergraduate degree, but applicants with other qualifications or professional experience are also encouraged to apply.
