What our students think

Ina Ivanova
5th semester

“Studying Communication and Media Science at Corvinus has opened my eyes to a world of opportunities. I enjoy each of the modules offered and take the most out of the challenges that come along my training. The programme is quite practical, especially in the last 3 semesters – expect multiple big projects, an internship and plenty of new knowledge to obtain. Best part is that the programme covers all fields of communication, which means that you will have a variety of options to choose from if you would like to obtain a master’s degree.”
