With about 3000 students and 100 professors in all five media centres of Munich, Stuttgart, Cologne, Hamburg, and Berlin, the university trains the next generation of media talent for an international media society.
The graduate and postgraduate school for media and communication has state accreditation from the Bavarian State Ministry of Sciences, Research and Arts, and is also accredited in locations across Germany: Baden-Württemberg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Hamburg and Berlin. Graduates of receive a Bavarian university degree.
The Media School 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. International projects 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.
Since 2013 Macromedia is a part of the international education network “Galileo Global Education”.
