The Master’s in International Communication Management (MICM) is designed to develop communication managers who can research, develop, implement and manage complex communication strategies on a global scale. The course explores international developments, cultural differences, economics and ethics – as well as personal skills, like leadership, public speaking and conflict management.
The MICM programme challenges you to put theory into practice. In the highly practical world of communication, it’s not about reproducing what you’ve learned. It’s about applying your knowledge to new – and constantly changing – situations.
Throughout the programme, you’ll be expected to create new solutions and visions, from new perspectives. These are important skills for a Master’s student - and essential if you’re going to develop compelling strategies and plans in the globalised business world.
