“Dear professionals of the museum field, I am currently working on my PhD thesis in economics on the internationalization strategies of museums and the implications on their economic models. This thesis asks three questions related to the internationalization of museums. · To what extent is there a (costs and revenues) structure distortion, induced by internationalist models? · What are the effects on markets? · What are the main stakes of the status of artworks and museum items in the globalized museum world? This research program seeks to legitimize internationalization strategies among art organizations, increase their earned incomes, and spread an innovative business model for industries dedicated to the arts.

To go further into my researches, I spread an online questionnaire on the internationalization strategies to major international museums – to be filled before the 27th of December. Your contribution is crucial ! If you prefer to do the questionnaire by phone we can schedule a phone call. A deep thank you for your help, Rebecca”

The goal of this questionnaire is to nourish a PhD thesis on the international strategies among museums. Internationalization can define an action that involves a partner based in another country.

Public and private budget cuts, state withdrawal from the cultural field, and increasing production costs, put pressure on museums to integrate economic issues into their development models. And internationalization may be a response to this economic responsibility.

This thesis asks three questions related to the internationalization of museums.
- To what extent is there a (costs and revenues) structure distortion, induced by internationalist models?
- What are the effects on markets?
- What are the main stakes of the status of artworks and museum items in the globalized museum world?

Professionals may rely on this research program to overcome cut subsidies and to frame international development. Outside the museum field, this research program seeks to legitimize internationalization strategies among art organizations, increase their earned incomes, and spread an innovative business model for industries dedicated to the arts.
