Athens Heritage Management MA in top three Masters courses globally

The Heritage Management MA offered at Kent’s Athens centre has been ranked as the third best Masters course from the 50 best MAs for Culture and Creative Industries Management globally.

The Athens course has previously placed eighth and ninth but this year has risen to third on the continued strength of its offering, in a league table produced by Eduniversal.

The programme is a collaborative dual-award from Kent and the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB), a partnership that ensures world-class tuition and an interdisciplinary learning environment.

Alumni from the centre have gone on to secure positions at leading heritage organisations and within governments, in locations ranging from the USA and Namibia to Iran and Rwanda.

Course director Dr Evangelos Kyriakidis recently wrote for The Conversation about the illegal trade in antiquities that has occurred over many centuries and what can be done to stop it.

With the University set to celebrate 20 years in Europe since the opening of its centre in Brussels in 1998 the success of the Athens centre underlines Kent’s role on the continent – with other centres in Paris, Brussels and Rome – and its position as the UK’s European university.
