The broad curriculum of the programme offers the opportunity to explore different fields such as PR, media, marketing, business, psychology, international development and more. Personally, I especially enjoyed the various real-life projects in different fields and the group work in intercultural teams. For me that was exactly what I needed since I did not really know what I wanted to do when I started.
The curriculum in combination with great counseling from my academic advisor and abroad experience in Peru and Canada has helped me to develop both personally and professionally. Thanks to my studies I discovered my passion for intercultural training and the human side of business.
Currently I am working as Manager, Client Relations and Global Communications at a Canadian consulting firm for personal and professional development. I like the personal contact with clients from different countries and I am supporting our CEO in setting up training sessions as well as managing the social media activities.
I started studying International Communication without a clear idea of what I wanted to do (‘something with communications’) and I left inspired to build my own career based on my passion instead of just following a pre-determined path.
