What makes this Master different

Focus on real world

The Master combines theory and practice.

It focuses on developing economically sound projects designed around a wide spectrum of cultural activities in the fields of natural and cultural heritage, cultural and creative industries, and tourism.

Methodology and approach

The programme promotes discussion, debate and diversity by providing opportunities for exchange and peer learning, in the classroom and during the study visits.

The students:

  • Learn from the world renown professors and experts during the lectures and knowledge sessions
  • Conduct case-study analysis of some of the current examples
  • Practice through out-of-classroom activities, workshops and study visits to selected   sites/locations
  • Apply the frameworks and concepts by designing their own actual project that they can implement after the completion of the course
  • Receive tutoring support for learning comprehension and write-up of the project document.

Renown faculty

The Master has a strong international faculty including professors from Macquarie University, Ecole polytechnique, City University London, University Paris I-Sorbonne, and University of Barcelona.

A number of practitioners, officials and experts from UNESCO, ILO and several other international organizations also teach on the Master, making it a valuable blend of contemporary international academic and practical experience.

Programme structure

The Master duration is 1 year with only about 4 months of face-to-face learning activities taking place in Turin, Italy. This makes the programme accessible and affordable for working practitioners and students coming from outside of Italy.

The residential module takes place at the ITCILO campus in Turin - a modern green area closer to river Po, providing a stimulating international environment, ideal for studying, sharing experience and creating networks.
