Obiettivo didattico

The Master in Arts Management and Administration (MAMA) is a full-time, international, one-year program that is taught entirely in English designed for students from all over the world.
MAMA aims to support artistic innovation and cultural development worldwide, by strengthening the leadership and management skills required for arts organizations to thrive.
Leveraging Italian excellence in cultural heritage and artistic production, the program will strengthen your cultural background as well as your professional skills, which will allow your career to flourish.


MAMA is an intense full-time program. The learning model provides class sessions and case studies together with many active methods such as assignments, simulations, company visits etc.
You will meet experienced SDA Bocconi Arts Management faculty, but also international visiting professors from leading business school from all over Europe and the USA, as well as professionals, artists, and executives in the field. Extra-curricular activites, such as Italian course for non-Italian speakers, or Excel course, are also offered to students.
MAMA wants to offer you solid foundations in management, by creating a stimulating environment, focusing on an international market with a multidisciplinary approach, and enriching it all with unique experiences such as the Grand Tour in world-famous centers of Italian culture, or MAMA internships, a chance to work for one of MAMA's main partners or collaborating institutions.

Esame / Tesi / Stage

Internships are an opportunity to put theory into practice, broadening horizons and enabling change and innovation in arts and cultural institutions.
The internship lasts at least three months and it will take place between June and December. Students may also search for an internship on their own should this better fit their personal and career goals. Independent internships must be approved by the MAMA Director after presenting a detailed internship proposal.
Instead of getting and internship, you can become arts entrepreneurs by implementing your own start-up under the supervision of one of our faculty members. All field or start-up projects will have a final presentation the day before graduation in front of MAMA participants and faculty.
