Macromedia Media School

Go from being a consumer to a maker of media

Media – especially the digital ones - make up our days.

Our days start with a  glance at our smart phones for briefings on the latest news and weather. We  post and like on Facebook or YouTube  while making our ways through the hours and town. While doing such, Spotify and its like provide us with the soundtrack of our daily lives. A great evening is followed by a posting on Snapchat. As all this shows, we have long gone from being mere consumers of media to proactive creators of and commentators the content comprising our digital society. Should you see this as being your job of choice, come to us. We'll teach you the professions of journalism and media management!

Journalism has become one of the fastest-moving, all-encompassing jobs around. That's thanks to such innovations as cross-media, online channels and social media. We'll provide you with the skill keeping you on top of these trends and thus at the cutting edge of this exciting profession.

The media  also have a huge scope of activity. This is because they are the key components of marketing, advertising and culture. Our course in media management will accordingly teach you how to use the media to create and administer the strategies, messages  and events moving, enthusing, inspiring and entertaining persons!

The Macromedia Media School's degree programs in journalism and media management provide you with the knowledge and hands-on training required to understand, make and manage media. These programs are comprised of six semesters at your home campus, plus one abroad. Graduates attain an internationally-recognized bachelor's degree.

The journalism degree program's seven semesters  inculcate all of the knowhow and proficiencies required to work in today's media. This industry's  incorporation of digital channels  to classic ones (primarily print and audiovisual) has vastly increased its speed, scope and reach of operation. This program puts you at the forefront of this transformation, and thus equips you to work in all of the media - including print and online ones and their combinations and permutations – and in all of the entities serving and making use of them – such as TV and radio stations; editorial, online and cross-media offices and agencies; production companies; and the communication departments at corporations.

Media Management
Graduates of the media management degree program are qualified to handle the business, legal, technical and creative aspects of the media. As such, they are sought after by employers. Such careers often lead to management positions in the media industry itself, and with manufacturers and service providers.
