As a student of Design and Cultural Economics, you will engage in a series of courses that render you a thorough understanding of the fields of design history, organisation and marketing strategy. During the course, you will develop analytical, communicative, business and management skills that are directed towards businesses within the area of culture and experience economy. You will be qualified to work as a consultant, facilitator, entrepreneur and project manager. A BA in Design and Cultural Economy qualifies for a range of Graduate programmes at the Faculties of Humanities or Social Sciences.
Turn theory into reality
It is a great idea to include an internship in a business into your studies. This will allow you to put theory into practice. You might be interested in internships at cultural institutions, advertising agencies, municipalities, design companies and so forth. You make the arrangements, but we are here to help if you need it. The internship is concluded with a written report presented to your internship supervisor.
