Absolvia 2018: 35 Alumni Celebrate Their Graduation in Berlin

On June 9th, 35 bachelor and master students successfully graduated from Macromedia University campus Berlin. Amongst them was Media Management Bachelor-Alumnus Sven Bottesch, who was honored as the most successful Macromedia student from all campuses.

The long study sessions of the last month have paid out: After weeks and weeks of intense work on their theses, 35 graduates of Macromedia University Berlin received their degree on June 9th. The university celebrated their graduates from Bachelor and Master programs such as …… at the well-known Hotel Adlon Kempinski near Ku’Damm. Sven Bottesch, who exceeded the expectations in his Media Management Bachelor studies by far, was awarded with the title of best Macromedia graduate Germanwide. Verena Sellier, graduate of the German Bachelor program Media Management, was honored as the best student at Berlin campus.

Guest speaker Julia Grass, head of social media at Berliner Zeitung and Berliner Kurier (Dumont Verlag), held the keynote speech to give a proper farewell to the students. Speaking from her own experiences as young leader in a rather traditional publishing house, she pointed out that the digital media landscape offers exciting new career paths that have not yet been tested - a factor that bears difficulties, but also a vast number of existing chances and possibilities. She encouraged the young graduates to accept failing as part of success, to fiercely strive for their goals, but also to always question their chosen path. Astrid Friese, academic dean of campus Berlin, believes in a bright future for the alumni: „I am very proud to witness another successful class earning their degrees and wish all our graduates a tremendous start into their professional lives. I am sure that they are well equipped for all challenges the media landscape might hold for them and am already looking forward to hearing about their first career steps at the next alumni meetup!“
