Program Overview

Program Description:
The generation of the "digital native citizen" has led to fundamental changes in the role that media and communication play in today`s businesses and societies. Recent phenomena such as blogs, open source references, and on-line social media represent new approaches to the use of communication technology in everyday environments. These new tools also offer businesses new opportunities for growth and diversification. With an interdisciplinary and researchbased approach, the MCM Degree programme provides students with important managerial skills to exploit recent developments as well as gather specialized knowledge. The content of the programme covers a wide range of managerial situations in order to prepare students for a broader, more managerial-oriented application of communication skills to successfully work in and with media corporations in a increasing competitive and international business world.

The curriculum integrates media and communication studies with management skills. On the one hand, students will complete the courses of our general management programme, such as an introduction to management, strategic management, financial and human resources, accounting, change management. On the other hand, the programme will include specialized courses on corporate communication, media psychology, stakeholder communication, marketing and media, and innovation to examine communicative interaction with and for different target groups.
