Course description

Arts and cultural organizations compete for people's time and interests and need the same strong leadership skills as consumer and other commercial brands. This program aims to strengthen the leadership and business skills needed in the arts and cultural industries to achieve success in the competition for consumer time.

The program is for leaders of cultural organizations in the Nordic and Baltic countries who want to strengthen their leadership skills to ensure both their own and their organization’s success.

In the first session, you will begin a self-development process that continues throughout the program, helping you learn effective ways to lead yourself and change management skills. In the second module, you will strengthen your business understanding. You will learn to manage financial information and direct it towards strategic goals, and learn how to develop your organization to serve your audience and customers' changing needs better. You will also deepen your vision of digitalization and its role in your community. The third module gives you a range of tools for managing and strengthening strategic relationships. In the final part of the program, you will, with your peers, build a vision of how the cultural industries can jointly reinforce their thought leadership in the field.

Personal development is deepened by individual coaching throughout the program which links your development to your organization's context.

The program faculty come from both academia and business. Keynote speakers are known as influential in a leadership perspective and deepen the program’s objectives.

The program has three modules held over seven training days. Modules are held in Copenhagen, Helsinki, and Oslo. Each module includes pre- and post-assignments. You will also study two online courses, the Fundamentals of Accounting and Design Thinking, which you can complete independently at your own pace. The total duration of each online course is approximately 6-8 hours.

You will network with your peers during the program. In addition, a reception will be held during each module where we invite local cultural and business guests to share their experiences and network with you. After completing the program, you can become a member of the BOC alumni group, which will be a significant support group in the future.

Completing the program will give you seven ECTS credits; with an additional assignment, you can receive nine credits. The credits can be transferred to the Aalto MBA or Executive MBA program.

The program partners are the Swedish National Museum and BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo. Financial support for the participants is provided by the Saastamoinen Foundation and the Föreningen Konstsamfundet.
