Target group

The aim of the degree course in Media Management is to qualify students as future managers in the media industry or institutions related to media, or for an academic career in research and training in the media industry. Our students familiarise themselves with the specifics of media, its markets and its management, with the aid of courses such as Media Administration and Media Markets, Media Marketing and Media Controlling, as well as a seminar on Publishing and additional media-related optional elective subjects. Economic principles are also addressed. The course places emphasis on project work, presentation of results and teamwork. An obligatory work placement in a media company and an optional semester abroad round off the training. The Master's degree in Media Management links theory with practice, breaking new ground amongst German universities in this respect.
