Programme Outline

The Master in International Communication (MIC) is a joint programme developed in close cooperation between the Geert Hofstede Consortium partners:​

Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen
IULM University of Milan, Italy
Vilnius University, Lithuania
Leeds Beckett University, United Kingdom

Specialising in communication and public relations in international professional contexts, MIC prepares communication professionals for their tasks and responsibilities in a multi-cultural and international environment. As a MIC graduate, you are an interculturally competent communication professional who is able to work in a global context. You anticipate change and is able to create, offer and manage sustainable and innovative solutions to problems from the professional field at a senior managerial or consultancy level.

The MIC offers students the opportunity to study at two universities and graduate with two degrees and a consortium certificate. The duration of the programme is three semesters. A core programme is offered in the first semester and each of the four consortium universities offers three specialisations in the second semester. During your study, you will spend those two semesters at two of the consortium universities. In the third semester, you will write your Master’s thesis under the supervision of those two universities, which will both award you with a master’s degree.

The programme is practice-oriented, multidisciplinary and based on competency-based learning. You will work on ‘real life’ cases brought in by companies and (governmental and other) agencies. The course is entirely offered in English to an international student body. The MIC is a fully accredited programme and is funded with support from the European Commission
