What our Students say

“Risk and Crisis management allowed me to gain new knowledge about crisis management with a focus on the role of social media, interactive communication and increasing the competencies of the people involved. I’m thankful to my course professor and my classmates for welcoming me and including me from the first days which were very hard as I was scared about this new reality. They inspired me to grow up and I enjoyed the lessons and various debates on current topics. I will return to Italy with a beautiful memory.”

Xheneta Lekiqi, ERASMUS exchange student from the University of Verona, Italy

“I remember the struggles, stress and the challenges I faced during my studies and my experience of traveling and living alone, it is all worth it now. It has prepared me for my dream job in the field of digital Public Relations and branding. The program and UNIC supported me all the way from the start to achieving my career goals. I hope more people will realize the career-importance of having an MA in Digital Media and Communication.”

Manar Wehbe, Manager at Influencers Relations, Lebanon

“Since day one I felt that the campus was the ideal place to study for my Master’s degree. The instructors knew how to bring the best out of a student and that kept me focused on my goals while studying. The hands-on practices taught me differentiation between the media and how to use each one of them. The program covers various perspectives about social media and it is the reason I chose to be where I am today!”

Agata Wdowiak, ERASMUS exchange student from the University of Lodz, Poland

“My studies enabled me to have hands on and theoretical knowledge in an era that digital media is so prominent, and I would say necessary for all TV channels and other businesses. My studies helped me to build up my brand, promote my TV programs on social media platforms whilst engaging with the audience. It also taught me how to draw in new audiences using different theories and skills as well as always having a plan ready to handle a production crisis. It was great to be part of this study, meeting new people and learning from my professors and other people who share our passion for this field.”
