  • Overzicht

The objective of the Part-time Executive International Master of Corporate Communication Programme is to increase the knowledge, skill and quality of (communication) managers. In four building blocks, the participants will acquire the most advanced knowledge of corporate communication in a European perspective. Students will also be given extensive training in the use of the academic theories in daily business practices.

The combined focus on the academic and practical issues of business allows the development of internationally-oriented knowledge, skills and vision.

Target group

The Master of Corporate Communication Programme brings together a diverse group of accomplished, driven and open-minded professionals from Europe and beyond. Participants work in various communication positions, often in a managerial capacity, in governmental institutions, commercial companies, NGOs and consultancies. This diversity adds tremendous value to the programme, through the exchange of best practices, and the formation of friendship that last well beyond graduation.


The programme kicks off with a four-day Foundations programme that looks at current issues in corporate communication, new research and management tools.

Participants can subsequently design their own programme by choosing six Advanced Elective Courses, taught by academics and business professionals from around the world.

In line with the international approach of the programme, there will be a week-long trip to a cosmopolitan city, such as New York. This involves visits to Fortune 500 companies and specialised agencies, and gives the participant a unique peek in the kitchen of successful businesses.

The programme is capped with an individual thesis that combines academic research with a look at a current communication issue in the field. Each year two prizes are awarded; the best thesis is awarded the Shell Netherlands Stimulation Award for Excellence in Corporate Communication and the Boer & Croon Award for the most innovative thesis.
