As one of the oldest cities in the world, the centre of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy, Athens is the perfect setting for the MA in Heritage Management. The programme is taught through a unique collaboration between the University of Kent and Athens University of Economics and Business, with students gaining practical experience working with the Initiative for Heritage Conservancy (IHC). This interdisciplinary course connects the worlds of business and archaeology in order to teach the skills necessary for the management of heritage sites across the world.
The archaeologically significant Athenian suburb of Eleusina hosts the teaching centre for the postgraduate course. With excellent transport links to the centre of Athens, students immerse themselves in a city famous for its long history of arts, learning and philosophy. Students conduct landmark research and actively shape the way World Heritage sites are managed.
