Bachelor's Degree with Specialisation in Media and Communication Management: Shape media strategies for the global market

This course offers a combination of creative and management units and a wealth of practical experience helping you develop the full range of competencies that are crucial to thrive as managers in the fast evolving media industry. Through foundation courses in marketing, digital media management, advertising, branding, public relations and broadcasting, you will gain a holistic overview of what modern media and communication management entails in an international context. You will also gain hands-on knowledge of production of digital and interactive media, music, videos as well as conventional mass media and print materials.

Strategic collaboration with the University of Westminster

This programme is a part of our strategic collaboration with the world renowned University of Westminster.

Additional Degree: Earn the German BA along with your BA Hons

Unlike the regular German Bachelor degrees, in this case, you do not need to fulfill the German admissions criteria for university of applied sciences. 

How the Additional Degree Works: After you successfully complete the sixth semester of the programme, the University of Westminster awards you the accredited degree of BA (Hons). Then, you will enroll for the additional semester in the corresponding Macromedia course in order to earn the extra 30 ECTS required for the German BA degree. Upon successful completion of this semester, you receive the state-recognised Bachelor of Arts degree from the Macromedia University.

Benefits of the Additional Degree
