Communication management in Leipzig
The University of Leipzig is well-known as the premier place to study strategic communication and public relations in the German speaking countries since the mid-1990s. More than 500 graduates completed the master program Communication Management (since 2007) or prior programs, e.g. the communication studies magister program wth an emphasis on public relations or the former bachelor program PR and communication management.
Professionals interested in further education can apply for the part-time master programs Corporate Media (Professor Bentele) or Mobile Marketing (Jun.-Professor Wolf) at the Leipzig School of Media. An English-language Master of Management program Corporate for Leaders (Professor Zerfass) is offered at BI Norwegian Business School, Oslo, and also open to German professionals.
Outstanding student theses are honored with the Günter-Thiele-Award each year. Moreover numerous theses have been recognised nationally and internationally with the Albert-Oeckl-Award by the German Public Relation Association, the Best Thesis Award by the Federal Association of Press Spokespersons or on an international level as best masters' theses in Europe by EUPRERA.
Today Leipzig alumni are working across Germany, Europe and all over the world in communication departments or agencies - and of course they can be seen at the legendary alumni event of our student organisation LPRS each year.
