Internship or your own start-up
Through internships, companies offer students the opportunity to develop an individual field project tackling real-life, complex problems by blending together knowledge and skills from different functional areas. This is an opportunity to put theory into practice, broadening horizons and enabling change and innovation in arts and cultural instituito e. The internship lasts at least three months and it will take place between June and December. Students may also search for an internship on their own should this better fit their personal and career goals. Independent internships must be approved by the MAMA Director after presenting a detailed internship proposal.
Instead of getting and internship, MAMA participants might take the opportunity to be arts entrepreneurs by implementing their own start-ups under the supervision of one of our Faculty members.
All field or start-up projects will be presented the day before graduation in front of MAMA participants and faculty.
MAMA Partners and Collaborating Institutions will propose field projects and select MAMA participants as interns.

Internship at Musei Vaticani Ufficio Mostre:
My internship in the Exhibitions Office at the Vatican Museums has allowed me to immediately put into practice many of the skills and knowledge I gained in the MAMA program. I moved from discussing museum exhibition case studies at SDA Bocconi, to helping to organize the management and practicalities of transporting some of the Vatican’s most world-famous art to Russia for an exhibition later this year. I went from learning about the importance of an international and culturally diverse perspective on Arts Management, to assisting in the delivery of a fascinating and symbolically significant collaboration between the Vatican Museums and the Jewish Museum in Rome - borrowing art from over 50 Italian and international museums and galleries.
Finally, I have had the opportunity to design and execute a separate market research project for the Vatican Museums – putting my marketing knowledge from SDA Bocconi to the test in one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. The practical knowledge of cultural tourism, and the project management experience that I have gained from this project, have both shown me my particular areas of interest within the arts sector, and driven me to go out and use this experience for the benefit of other cultural institutions.

Internship experience at the Archaeological Park of Paestum
As a MAMA1 student, I had the incredible opportunity to intern for three months at the Parco Archeologico di Paestum, and was able to work in the Fundraising Office. These have been three intense and satisfying months, where I had the chance to work closely with the Director Gabriel Zuchtriegel, meet and keep contacts with stakeholders, build and materialize new strategies and have an important exchange with the institution consisting in passing my theoretical know-how and understanding and developing the practical aspect of working in a Cultural Public Institution in Italy. To say that this internship, in this particular place, pricelessly helped shape my future career possibilities is, in my opinion, an understatement.
