IBCoM - International Bachelor Communication and Media
Media, telecommunications, computer networks, and creative industries touch many aspects of daily lives and reach every corner of the world. They have had an increasing impact on political and cultural life, and on entire economies across the globe. The shift in our everyday experiences towards enhanced mediation has had enormous consequences. It has transformed international relations and business opportunities, but also citizenship and democracy, cognition and culture, as well as people's personal and working lives. Communications and Media has thus become a vital and rewarding field of study, that will help you understand contemporary global society and to function successfully within it.
The International Bachelor's programme in Communication and Media (IBCoM) was launched in September 2009. It is the latest addition to the renowned curricula offered by Erasmus University Rotterdam, which has been a front runner among European universities in the development of international degree courses, such as its highly respected BSc programmes in International Business Administration and Economics and Business Economics. Erasmus University is ranked in the Top 100 QS World University Rankings and in the Top 100 Times Higher Education Rankings.
Meeting the demands of the contemporary communication and media professions requires flexibility, creativity and adaptability to ever-changing, increasingly global and diverse working environments. That's why the International Bachelor's programme in Communication and Media at Erasmus University takes a comparative, international approach to communication and media studies. The programme is taught exclusively in English to a diverse student body from all corners of the world. The number of places is limited, and students are selected according to their international backgrounds and aspirations. With extensive opportunities for international exchanges, IBCoM is an excellent stepping stone to advanced studies or a career in communications and related fields.
