International Communication Management - English

You could a lobbyist helping SHELL to maximise its openness and transparency about its activities in the Nigerian Delta. This is what you do after you complete the degree programme and begin working on real assignments. But as a young professional, you do much more. You discover, for example, the culture at ‘your’ company. You attend meetings and company parties and meet with colleagues. You also learn all there is to know about ‘your’ market - the latest developments, the competition and what they do. In other words, you learn what this profession involves on a daily basis.

An increasing number of International Communication Management graduates are deciding that they want to continue their education after graduation. Unfortunately, while THUAS does offer a Master of International Communication programme, it is aimed at students who also have two years’ work experience. If this does not apply to you, you will need to look elsewhere. But don’t worry; outside the Netherlands ICM students can follow a Master’s directly after graduation. We have seen, for instance, that ICM students have no problem applying for a Master in Corporate Communication at the IE School of Communication in Madrid, Spain. Some also apply for the International Journalism at Cardiff University, in the UK or Strategic Communications at Columbia University in the US.

Please note, however, that different rules apply in the Netherlands, as most Dutch universities require that THUAS graduates follow a pre-master’s first. So bear in mind that you won’t be able to apply for a Master’s like Persuasive Communication at the University of Amsterdam directly after you finish ICM.
