„Through the MCM programme you gain skills to manage the various fields of a converging environment more easily as well as gaining 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, take photos, feed web pages with content, manage social media channels and immediately react to feedback. Oh, and there's a print paper, too, that needs to be produced. The classes I took helped me acquire the skills to handle these challenges."
