Italy has the largest number of cultural sites recognized by UNESCO. This heritage is very important  in order to revaluate the cultural and financial aspect of the country. In order to manage effectively  this heritage,  are needed managers capable of revaluating such assets  and trained with higher professional skills. The Cultural Heritage Management Master Program’s goal is to educate such professional figure to answer the country’s cultural and financial needs. To satisfy such request, the program trains its students to be productive and competent  in the financial-economic, linguistic, technologic, communication and marketing fields.  When the student will have completed the program, he/she will have the skills that are required to become a senior  manager in a company that belongs to the Cultural Heritage Field. In addition, the skills acquired through the program will allow the student to enter  this field as consultant in the Public Administration (Cultural Assets Ministry, Regional Executive Offices, Superintendence Office, Regions and City Halls), or as organizers of art and history expos, or, finally, a marketing and communication director in the Cultural Assets’ field.
