Did you know that "KlassikRadio", "freiKartE" and "kunst meets kommilitonen" were conceived and realised as part of the KMM project study programme? The "Cultural Management" course at the Hamburg University of Music and Theatre was established in 1987. In 2000, the programme became the Institute for Cultural and Media Management, which is now one of the largest institutions of its kind in Europe with over 500 students. It offers a unique range of programmes from certificate to doctorate.


The range of courses offered by the KMM Institute at the University of Music and Theatre includes: the consecutive Master's degree programme "Cultural and Media Management" (face-to-face study), the continuing education Master's degree programme "Cultural and Media Management" (distance learning), various further education courses (certificates, KMM Academy) and the doctorate to "Dr. phil." (on- campus programme). The programme content is geared towards the theoretical and practical requirements of the relevant professional fields in the area of cultural and media management. The course content is taught in modules that build on each other and combine elements from the following subject areas: 1. culture and society 2. business and marketing 3. foundations and fundraising 4. law 5. organisation and leadership 6. media and digital.


The development and expansion of instrumental, communicative and systemic competences for work in interface functions (e.g. between art, society, politics and business) and management positions. The degree programmes prepare students for leadership and management activities in the cultural and media sectors, promote specialist and social skills and train professional, creative managers. As the cultural and media manager of tomorrow, you will work in museums, publishing houses, theatres, music schools, television productions, music academies, recording companies, foundations, clubs and associations.
