    The Directorate of Cultural Projects or Institutions trains executives and managers of public and private cultural organizations in the development, design, implementation and evaluation of cultural projects within private or public structures. In this multidisciplinary approach, emphasis is placed on the development of field experience reinforced by compulsory internships. In addition, it enables the changes at work in contemporary societies and in the cultural sector to be taken into account: the preservation of diversity, democratisation, the attractiveness and dynamism of territories, support for industries or the recognition of sectors. It provides students with the theoretical and operational analysis tools needed to implement strategies and projects within artistic and cultural institutions.
