As the birthplace of the Renaissance and the birthplace and hometown of many of the most celebrated artists, Florence is the ideal place of study for any individual desiring a career within the art sector, from art dealers and art editors to art marketers and communication consultants.
In addition to serving as the site of creation of countless masterpieces, Florence was also the centre of powerful art commissioners, buyers and sellers, and the great scholars and dealers of the nineteenth
century whom left an inestimable legacy to the connoisseurs and dealers of today.
The European School of Economics in Florence aims to introduce students to the art market and to the institutional network sustaining and promoting art and culture from a business perspective.

The programme combines rigorous coursework taught by professional docents and valuable on-site learning opportunities, in order to distinguish students within the public, private and nonprofit arts environment. The school’s location, found in one of the most important art capitals of the world, serves as the base for the development of the programme, in which world renown museums and art shows are used as course material.
