Positions could also include media consultant, communication analyst or research. As the master’s programme is international, you will have a larger labour market as your arena.
Specialize according to your own interests
Media Management is a rapidly growing research field that analyses the economic, cultural and technological transformations and tendencies in the media industry. In this programme you will also find yourself in a research-oriented environment.
The Master’s thesis (30 ECTS) is preferably a research report on a development project for a media organization.
