Bachelor
(Bachelor of Science)

How does a company establish itself, its products and its services as a uniquely distinctive brand? How does it converse with customers and those it wants to gain as customers? How do the channels of information function in and outside the company? - Only successful business communications can help to find satisfactory answers to such questions. And, like business in general, business communications are also becoming ever more professional, dynamic and differentiated. Companies therefore have a greater need than ever before for professionals who combine communicative skills with business expertise, leadership characteristics and "can-do" qualities.

These are the very same challenges for which our Business Communications study course prepares students. Thanks to its integrated and management-oriented communicative approach, it qualifies graduates for a wide range of tasks in corporate and marketing communications as well as all other communications-oriented management functions. Subsequent career options comprise extremely challenging professions such as corporate spokesperson, business journalist or communications consultant.

Graduates of our Business Communications programme are awarded a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree.

Prospects following studies

Business Communications graduates find themselves facing career options in a wide variety of fields. They include relevant segments such as marketing, with internal and external corporate communications, but also areas that do not seem so obvious at first. These include for instance activities in business journalism, in media work, in creative agencies, in non-profit organisations or even as press officers for public administrations, political parties, business associations and other groups.
Moreover, with appropriate professional experience or corresponding additional qualifications, the course is also a good departure point for working successfully as a consultant or coach.

I was in search of a wide-ranging degree program which offers the opportunity to appropriate basic knowledge. Furthermore I was fascinated by the application of communication and its regulation at the economic system. The combination of expertise and creativity was perfect for me. The practical input as well as the small groups offers an ideal requirement.
