"International Communication program provides a broad basis for young professionals to enter the field of communication. Unlike most study programs, it combines the rigorous scientific approach of a research university, with the practically orientated hands-on methods for allied science institutions. This combination enables the program graduates to develop and apply abstract solutions to concrete problems."
