MHMK, Macromedia University for Media and Communication
Developments in our society follow the rhythm of technological progress, between the cornerstones of globalization and mediatization.
MHMK, Macromedia University for Media and Communication, follows these developments in its capacity as a university, and conceives itself as a place for reflecting on all aspects of media society. Our courses of study cover the broad spectrum of modern media careers, from management, and content jobs such as journalism, to the creative fields of design, gaming, and film and television. Our teaching is informed by the core idea of training students to the highest level professionally, but also giving them individual support in their personal development.
With over 80 professorships and over 2000 students in all five media centres of Munich, Stuttgart, Cologne, Hamburg, Berlin and Milano, the University trains the next generation of media talents for an international media society.
MHMK has state accreditation from the Bayerisches Staatsministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst (Bavarian State Ministry of Sciences, Research and the Arts), and is also accredited in locations across Germany: Baden-Württemberg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Hamburg and Berlin. Graduates of MHMK receive a Bavarian university degree. All courses of study are tested and certified by the accreditation agencies FIBAA or Acquin.
MHMK trains personalities who can operate in a global market and work in transnational and transcultural projects. The international orientation is therefore promoted on two levels: through intercultural exchange and projects in teaching and research. Internationalprojects and case studies encountered by students as they study show how global standards become established on a regional level. A TV format, for example, or a video game, work differently in Japan than in Germany.
The students supplement these experiences by spending time overseas during their studies or their practical semester, in order to gain ‘tacit knowledge’ on the ground, at a partner institution or in an overseas business.
