„Through the MCM programme you are gaining skills to manage the various fields of a converging environment more easily as well as you are getting a better understanding of media management“.
“The MCM programme has provided me with the opportunity to deeply explore convergence from an interdisciplinary perspective. Here, I discovered my passion for media and communication studies – and especially new media – due to classes such as Cross-media Management, Case Studies in Media and Convergence Management and Consumer Behavior and Media. I am now working as a research and teaching associate at the department for media and communication at Klagenfurt university and I am also a PhD student, working on a dissertation about health communication and social media.”
"Nowadays journalists have to shoot videos, takephotos, feed webpages with content, manage social media channels andimmediately react to feedback. Oh, and there's a print paper too that needs tobe produced. The classes I took helped me acquire the skills to handlethese challenges."
