Good management is critical to the long term survival of museums as vibrant cultural institutions. This unit of study explores the characteristics of a well managed facility and provides students with the skills necessary to evaluate the operation of their own museum, both in terms of budget, human resource management and general cultural stewardship. Students will also acquire a specific set of key management skills utilised by middle and senior management. They include strategic planning, project management, budget development and program evaluation. Professional competence in these areas is normally a prerequisite for career progression. Field studies and role play techniques are utilised as part of the teaching program.
