training heritage leaders

The Heritage Management Organization (HERITAGE) was established in November 2008 with the goal of enabling key heritage managers, through targeted training, to independently transform heritage assets from decaying objects of study to dynamic sources of learning, community identity and economic development.

The Heritage Management Organization trains professionals in the management of heritage sites, independently of project specifics. Training practitioners in the essential skills and best practices which define heritage management is at the heart of the HERITAGE mission.

Since its founding HERITAGE has trained hundreds of individuals and organizations in more than 50 countries and is now on course to impact a quarter of global heritage hotspots by the year 2025.

Our Response

HERITAGE runs an Executive Education series for practitioners with a minimum of five years experience, summer field schools for senior students and junior practitioners and an MA in Heritage Management training both current and future heritage managers.


The sum is greater than the parts

Collaboration is a basic tenet of HERITAGE

Besides weaving an invaluable global network among participants, collaborative programs generate great dynamics, potential and opportunities.


In order to ascertain the quality of academic decisions regarding the MA in Heritage Management, we established an international academic committee of the highest quality.

HERITAGE is privately funded and independent of any governmental authority.
