Master in International Communication Management (Full-time)

At MICM students are immersed in an environment of differing perspectives in which they will experience hands-on how different cultures communicate in different ways. Of course, you will learn a thing or two as well. MICM deals with everything there is to know about international communication, such as corporate reputation, media relations, social media and internal communications, so businesses across the globe will know whom to call when they face a sticky communication problem.

Study load

The MICM programme consists of five terms starting during the first week of September through to the following August. Students will follow two classes during each term, one on Monday and the other on Thursday, each between 9:00 and 16:00. 

Structure of Master in International Communication Management (Full-time)

The icing on the cake of your education

MICM is not just any master. Apart from the in-depth material on international communication you will acquire during lectures, the real MICM experience is learning from your peers in the international classroom. MICM students typically differ in terms of occupation and nationality and this always inspires them to discuss burning questions about communication during course lectures. Students find answers on how to use communication during a corporate crisis, for instance, or how to implement a strategy to better a company’s internal relations. In addition to the eight main courses and the thesis project, students also complete five Professional Skills seminars. These seminars, along with the other courses are renewed each year, ensuring that the MICM curriculum remains relevant and reflects overall trends in the marketplace. To conclude the programme MICM students will write their thesis. Sure, it will be hard work, but you won’t have to lock yourself up and focus solely on writing. MICM encourages each student to write his or her thesis for an organisation. This trains you to ask clients how they would tackle today’s communication problems. After graduating from THUAS’ MICM programme international organisations will be keen to benefit from the knowledge and intercultural outlook you attained.
