Communication and Media Management


Communication and Media Management

Communicating information and knowledge effectively and correctly encompasses many fields that differ greatly from one another. To ensure that all the processes involved in conveying information are interlinked, both trained specialists and qualified management personnel are required. The Master's degree program in Communication and Media Management prepares you for precisely this.

You decide for yourself on which subject area you want to focus and then work in small groups on real projects that our professors organize in cooperation with partners from business and academia. This combines independent work with individual supervision, tests your ability to work in a team and teaches content in an application-oriented way.

Technical communication is a major focus of the program.

Technical communication forms the interface between experts, customers, consumers and the public. The aim is to convey technical information in a comprehensible manner, which is also oriented at the  target group. In the Master's program, you have the opportunity to focus on individual areas of the communication process. A wide range of electives allows you to take a closer look at the aspects of communication and media management that interest you most.

Who is the program aimed at?

You'll communicate technical content using a variety of media, adhering to "best practices" that help you better understand the content. If this sounds interesting to you and you want to learn how to communicate and manage information in an application-oriented way, then you've come to the right place. You need to have good or very good knowledge of the German language, a basic understanding of natural sciences and technology as well as enjoy media and design. The computer is used for a large part of the work, so you should be experienced in using computers and not be afraid of information technology. In order to work in projects, you should be able to work in a team and to work in a structured manner. However, the effort will be rewarded in the end: You can put the content and key qualifications you have learned to excellent use in a wide range of exciting professions.



Graduates of the program have very good chances on the job market. Depending on the area you are most interested in, you can choose between different career fields. Whether you choose information management, technical communication, communication and language, or media and design is up to you. We will give you all the knowledge and tools that you will need along the way.
