MA in World Heritage and Cultural Projects for Development (2015-2016)

15 May 2015

The ITC-ILO is launching a call for applications for the Master in World Heritage and Cultural Projects for Development, which will take place from 14 October 2015 to 1 October 2016.

The Master is designed by the University of Torino, the Politecnico di Torino and the International Training Centre of the ILO (ITCILO), in collaboration with UNESCO and ICCROM.

The Programme provides a solid foundation in cultural economics, going through the value chain of cultural tangible and intangible resources. It explores in detail the economic, social, institutional and legal considerations that govern the diverse categories of UNESCO designated World Heritage Sites.
The Programme also puts emphasis on strategic management competencies for the preservation and promotion of these sites as well as on monitoring the efficacy and adequacy of site management plans and associated cultural projects.

The Master will take place from 14 October 2015 and is divided into three major learning cycles:

  • The first cycle will be conducted through a distance learning component that will start on 14 October 2013 and will end on 20 December 2013.
  • The second cycle, from 27 January 2014 to 21 May 2014, is a face-to-face learning period that will be held in Turin, Italy, at the International Training Centre of the ILO. Class attendance is compulsory for the entire period.
  • The third cycle, from 22 May 2014 to 30 September 2014, will be a research and study period during which the students may attend internships activities and are expected to finalize their final project.
