100% employment among the first MA’s in Communication and IT

During autumn of 2014, the very first MA’s in Communication and IT have been launched into the world. In only a couple of months, all eight graduates have found exciting jobs in companies like Novo Nordisk, NNIT, Nordisk Film and Advice Digital.

When I look back on my five years, I am really happy about the professional competences that my studies have given me, says Mathias Andersen, one of the freshly graduated MA’s. Currently, Mathias is engaged in a number of digital projects in his position as Advisor at Advice Digital. Furthermore, he is working on a chapter for a textbook on international business communication about the facilitation of knowledge sharing in international companies.

Already at a very early stage of my studies, I realized that what we were learning is extremely relevant. There is a great demand for profiles like ours: We have an overall understanding of the relationship between technology, organization and users. At the same time, we understand what it takes to implement complex innovation processes, Mathias adds. This became particularly clear to him during an internship in his ninth semester where he experienced that the specialized skills from Communication and IT matched perfectly with the competences in demand by companies.

Associate Professor Stine Lomborg describes Communication and IT as an inter-disciplinary programme that combines computer science and media studies. The basic idea is that knowledge of the ways people make use of digital media and of digital media’s societal implications can improve the development of IT solutions and provide a stronger basis for innovation and value creation in diverse societal contexts, she adds.

The MA programme focusses on projects that give the students the opportunity to combine their technical and practical skills in, for instance, concept development; design; and analysis of large amounts of data by means of theories of network, communication and collaboration. Collaboration with companies on specific challenges and problems is often taken as the starting point.

MCC and CCC send congratulations to the graduates!
