Overview

Media & Communication industries are evolving at a rapid pace, driven to change by new technologies and big target shifts. This means that businesses, media companies, media agencies and communication firms need new skills, fresh minds and innovative ideas, all with a mix of creativity and analytical skills. Nowadays, technology has given us unprecedented means and channels of interaction with the markets, but most targets’ attention spans are so small that we need to constantly find new and more engaging ways of communicating.

That’s where target data comes in, giving us the chance to make hyper-personalised approaches to communication while also making performance assessment more precise.
With IMMCM, we give you the chance to discover your full potential and boost your media and communications skillset.

This International Master in Media and Communication Management is a 12-month International Master programme offered by POLIMI GSoM, which will give you new skills and innovative ideas that bring together creativity and analytical skills.

Keep up to date with this rapidly changing world with this Master.

With us at POLIMI GSoM, you will uncover your potential and empower your media and communication skillset.

Our International Media and Communication Management Master offers innovative teaching and learning approaches.

For you, we have designed standard in-class lectures, videos, and digital content but
also formats that create a very active environment and opportunities for discussion and sharing of information, such as teamwork, workshops, simulations and case studies.

To participate fully in classes and company visits, your presence on campus is highly recommended, especially from January 2023 onwards; in cases of visa delays, travel barriers or other specific issues, it would be possible to continue attending classes online.

Our partner companies will not simply support, but will also help to run the programme: they will design the content with our faculty and will bring their direct experience to the class, proposing real cases to discuss
during the sessions and offering qualified internship positions to the best students.
