 Public policies and state aid are strong in the arts and cultural sector in France as in many other European countries. The business model of many organizations has taken into account such a legal and financial environment. Yet, the combined effect of new theoretical approaches and increased pressure on public spending have induced dramatic changes in both the political framework and the means of national and local governments.
Therefore, management of arts and cultural organizations requires understanding such evolutions and implementing adequate response to meet the challenges ahead. You will learn how to navigate these political and financial issues and to integrate different operational objectives.

 The creative economy is increasingly important to economic well-being. So much so, that human creativity now appears to be the ultimate economic resource, particularly thanks to the development of a wide range of “creative industries”.
Inspired by cultural industries and the hi-tech sectors, this stream is also expanding to social and sustainable innovation, where the development of creative capabilities appears as an adaptive answer to the complex challenges and issues of our “post-normal times”.
This course aims at introduce and present the creative economy. You will learn to reflect upon its expansion beyond so-called “creative industries”. And address its mainstreaming and effects on the strategy and management of organizations and institutions.

 This course aims at developing an historical, conceptual and empirical synthesis on the “creative economy” through its emergence, expansions, and disruptions. You will learn the effects of the creative economy on the identities, strategies, values-models, structures, and processes of creative and innovative organizations. It introduces three main analytical frameworks:

  • The creative “knowledge-ideas-values” chain
  • The creative and innovative organizations as “creative powerhouses”
  • The “Upperground-Middleground-Underground” spatial and cognitive structure of creative ecosystems
  • Creative leadership and managerial capabilities

Upon completion of this course, you’ll be able to outline the steps within any process of management; to anticipate the desired results and communicate these results; to follow through the contingency plans and analyse the whole process of project management and improve it. The course is based on an hands-on approach through the management of real cases.

 Creative companies, whose goal is to sell the content they produce (entertainment, publishing etc.) are often most human-dependant companies. This can make them difficult to manage or generate a sustainable competitive advantage. 
Using a simple model to focus on the “talent” of the company, you will be able to develop a critical analysis of content-based businesses, and create a sharp and agile business plan.

 As the famous song by Irving Berlin goes, “There is no business like show business”. Well, there is certainly no Industry like the Entertainment Industry either.
The course will highlight the specifics of the Entertainment Industry (Movies, Music, Video games etc.), and why working in it is definitely a unique experience – for better or worse. Ultimately it shall help you answer the question: am I up for the unique job of managing Creative Talents?

Innovation and creation are two crucial elements for the understanding of innovation value assessment (IVA) or even the goodwill of an activity.

The main objective of the course is to help you to see how you can contribute to the development of the intangible assets of a company. You will learn the necessary rules and development trends to manage the creative and innovation issues of a Fashion, Food or Fragrance business, where innovation and creation are in the core of the intangible assets strategy.

 This course will teach you to understand and discuss the interactions between human rights standards and transnational companies’ activities and goals, in a globalized context. The course presents and discusses the contemporary debates, within political philosophy, on the nature of human rights and on global justice.
You will discover the specific responsibilities of political institutions, non-governmental organizations and multinational companies, particularly those related to specific sectors like the entertainment industry, publishing, and art. You will learn about implementation problems and ongoing political and diplomatic tension in the current institutional setting.

 The goal of the course is to understand the challenges that new markets, delivery channels and business models are bringing to the provision of financial services and to the regulatory and legal environment.  You will learn about the legal and non legal concepts related to intellectual property within the creative industries. The course will enable you to better comprehend issues such as copyright in an increasingly complex and global world. 

 The course introduces you to:

  • The core concepts of Access to Finance, Financial Inclusion and Microfinance for sustainable social and economic development. You will discover both the economic side for enterprise creation and growth, and the personal and social side, access to savings and insurance services, to fair credit, and how these concepts influence development aide.
  • You will learn about Values-based banking. What is it? How values-based banks differ from traditional lending institutions.
  • You will gain an understanding of the Art Market and the opportunities for new business models and players within this market, the geographical development within emerging markets, and the growing use of art as an investment and a tool for portfolio diversification.

 The objective of this course is to mobilize the concepts of "way of life" and "lifestyle" as an analytical framework to understand social practices and their evolution in the contemporary world. You will learn to address and answer the following questions:

  • How are social practices and lifestyle related to each other?
  • How do social practices, lifestyle and identity influence each other?
  • How does lifestyle manifest in everyday practices?
  • How do lifestyles change?
  • How do lifestyle trends influence product design and promotion?

 The objective of this course is to understand solidarity and Non-Profit Organizations through international cooperation, humanitarian action, and development policies in terms of structures, management, communication, governance, to keep on following the complexity of global evolution (history, professionalism, operational set up, new counterparts).

 The objective of this course is to respond proactively to the growing importance of social enterprises, creative industry and civil society organizations in the global economy.  You will learn the importance for founders, managers and actors of the creative industry and the social sector entities to master skills in dealing with the media, including social media. This course will teach you the role and function of media in the creative industry and not-for-profit/social sector. And give you the tools to approach media organizations and react to media requests effectively.

The course addresses best practices in lobbying/fundraising and giving. Techniques for private and corporate foundations. You will learn about the budgeting, investment, taxation and risk constraints and opportunities that characterised by non-profits.

 This course will teach you the main trends of the emerging field of social entrepreneurship as well as giving you the tools needed to build a meaningful career.
You will explore the new strategies, ideas and organisations meeting social needs (working conditions, education, health, etc.), while at the same time extending and improving civil society.

Artificial Intelligence is one of the most disruptive technologies emerging today. This course will form managers to understand the impacts of AI, separate the vision from the practical application and structure transformative initiatives. The course requires you to work in teams to deliver your analysis on a preassigned topic shared with the other students from their MSc; the output takes the shape of an academic poster and a pitch video, that will be evaluated by your peers.

Business Ethics

The seminar will instruct you how to better frame ethical issues related to business and the economy, and to become more aware of the philosophical questions which underlie individual and collective decisions. You will learn about the practical implementation of ethical standards in business by participating in the Lille World Forum (forum for a responsible and sustainable economy.
