Here we go: A new Masterclass starts on 11 October. The 30 spots for the "Class of 2021" in the Master's programme Communication Management at Leipzig University were again in high demand. A total of 144 applications were submitted.

The selection process has now been completed. 83 graduates of relevant Bachelor's programmes from Germany and from abroad were invited to the personal interviews at the Institute. Due to the large number of suitable applications, a multi-stage selection procedure had to be carried out.

23 female students (77%) and 7 male students (23%) from all over Germany were selected. They earned their Bachelor's degrees at 15 different universities. They come from Leipzig, Mannheim, Ilmenau, Mainz, Passau, Hanover, Würzburg, Erfurt, Munich, Dresden, Osnabrück, Augsburg, Greifswald and Jena. The different backgrounds and professional experiences of the new Masterclass promise a creative and productive working atmosphere.

The programme will start on 5 October 2021 with an introductory event. The students will be the first cohort to start the newly reformed Master Communication Management. They can expect a demanding full-time programme in which the latest strategic communication knowledge is taught. In addition to the various facets of communication management, in-depth courses are offered in areas such as financial and non-profit communication. Research transfer projects with renowned organisations and international modules with distinguished guest lecturers from abroad broaden the horizon. The majority of the courses in the winter semester are held in presence in appropriately equipped classrooms.
