The Heritage Management programme offered by University of Kent is a unique programme combining the worlds of archaeology and business and is taught in Athens at Elefsina (ancient Eleusis), an area of world-class archaeological significance.

About

The Heritage Management programme offered by University of Kent focuses on teaching the skills required for the management of heritage sites across the world and how to work effectively with archaeologists, architects, conservators, marketing and education specialists while also fundraising and supervising specific projects.

The programme is a collaborative dual award from the University of Kent and the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB), a partnership that ensures world-class tuition and an interdisciplinary learning environment. It is overseen by the Heritage Management Organization, a dynamic new research and education project with international funding, which is creating its own opportunities in the field.

As a collaborative programme between the Kent and AUEB, the programme is taught by staff from the Department of Classical & Archaeological Studies and the AUEB, at a centre in Elefsina, an Athenian suburb. The programme is entirely based in Elefsina, and taught over a 16-month period.
