Comments about MSc-Diploma-Certificate Arts and Heritage Management - At the institution - Sheffield - South Yorkshire

There has never been a greater need for managers with appropriate training to ensure that arts and heritage organisations survive and succeed in the 21st century. The Arts & Heritage Management MSc has been designed to appeal to people interested in starting a career in arts and heritage; those already working in the sector who wish to improve their management qualifications; and those who want to make a career change.
