Interdisciplinary master program, with courses fully taught in English, accredited by ARACIS in the field of Sociology.

The master program is organized yearly since 2005.

This programme is organized by the UNESCO Chair in Interculturality, Good Governance and Sustainable Development (Faculty of Philosophy) in partnership with the Universities of Geneva, Fribourg, Hamburg, Dortmund, Siegen, Dijon, University of Corsica Pasquale Paoli and with the University of Applied Sciences in Hamm and Lippstadt.
Graduates of the programme are excellently prepared to develop a career in the middle- and top-management of international institutions and companies. They are suited for careers in international institutions and organizations, both public and non-governmental, where leadership and management skills are applied in multicultural environments. They can successfully work as managers of cultural organizations, diplomats, (project) managers in the fields of arts, culture and mass-media. The flexibility of the programme also allows them to apply their intercultural management skills in other areas, as the curriculum has been developed in response to the rapidly changing requirements of a complex labour market.
The main target of the UNESCO Chair has been from its very beginning to promote academic relationships within Europe and to support the transfer of Know How. The full involvement of Swiss, German and French professors, alongside the Romanian teaching staff of this Department fosters that enriching academic relationship. Furthermore, students of the Intercultural Management MA are offered study opportunities in Swiss, French and German universities or other higher education institutions.
