The master’s program

The internationally oriented, interdisciplinary Master’s Program in Business Communication gives graduates a clear advantage on the job market thanks to the combination of a business and economics background with expert communication skills. BizComm equips students with the know-how they need to communicate effectively on all available channels in a digitally connected world – whether in a reel, a tweet, or a press release.

The program focuses on media and intercultural competence as well as diversity, and on how to use these skills strategically in corporate communications. Through interactive teaching, methods and concepts are not just learned in theory but also applied in practice by using simulations and conducting research projects in cooperation with corporate partners.
