About

The Master's Programme in Intercultural Management and Communication prepares you for the challenges which arise in increasingly diverse working environments. It is your key to global understanding. This full time two-year programme combines cultural and communication studies with management studies and aims at educating professionals who will work in networked societies and who will manage diversity and communication processes in intercultural settings.

With students coming from all over the world, you will live and study in a genuinely multilingual and multicultural environment. You will be taught by international teachers who are experts in their fields and who use innovative teaching methods which enhance community building and take into account the individuality of each learner.

The main focus areas of the Master's Programme in Intercultural Management and Communication are multiculturalism, communication and management, and the studies are divided into three basic modules: Cultures and Communication, Management and Contemporary Culture. You will learn how to manage intercultural and multilingual communication, how culture and multiculturalism function and structure societies, and how cultural identities are formed. Moreover, the programme will provide you with the competence to approach culture and multiculturalism from the perspective of philosophy and ethics and with an understanding of the functioning of communication and the role of digital media in society.

With a degree from the programme, you will be a specialist in intercultural communication and qualified for working in both public and private organisations, for example as an international coordinator, project manager, human resources manager, information officer, public relations specialist, researcher or educator.

The programme leads to a Master of Arts degree, and it can be completed in two years. Annually, 20 students with the best credentials are admitted. The application period is once a year.

There is no entrance examination for the international Master's programme. Admission decisions are made on the basis of the required documents. Each complete application will be evaluated individually. The applicants with the best qualifications will be selected.
