The MIC is for those who aspire to an international career as a communication practitioner in senior managerial/consultancy positions, responsible for the external and internal communication of an organisation. It offers you the opportunity to study at two universities and graduate with two degrees and a Geert Hofstede Consortium certificate. It is career focused, practical, multidisciplinary and competency-based. You will work on 'real life' cases brought in by companies and (governmental and other) agencies. You will not only be achieving an academic milestone, you will also be building your business network and complementing your résumé with work experiences.

The MIC is a fully accredited programme and is funded with support from the European Commission.
