“Know, know how to be, know how to do”. It is on these three cornerstones that IULM University has based its teaching mission, taking inspiration from the principles of UNESCO. Taking strength from its vocation of integrating cultural knowledge and professional competences, the University has from its very inception over 40 years ago always presented itself as a meeting point between the academic world and labour markets.
The Istituto Universitario di Lingue Moderne (I.U.L.M.) was founded in 1968 by the Fondazione Scuola Superiore per Interpreti e Traduttori, under the inspiration of Senator Carlo Bo and Professor Silvio Baridon. From the very beginning the idea behind the project was to satisfy the demands of the labour markets based on analyses of current trends.
I.U.L.M., as it was then known, concentrated its attention on the study of languages, an indispensable requirement for entering increasingly international markets and contexts focused on enhancing arts and culture markets.
The University was the first in Italy to perceive how the world of communication and the consumer society was evolving, and consequently it saw the need to update its courses by providing a specific series of tools. It is in this period that it founds the Scuola Speciale di Relazioni Pubbliche.
The decade that marks the definitive strengthening of the position of the University in the field of communication: the Faculty of Communication and Entertainment Studies is set up alongside the
University's first Faculty of Foreign languages and Literature. In 1998 the University takes on its current name: Libera Università di Lingue e Comunicazione IULM.
While continuing to pay close attention to the dynamics of the world of work, IULM University is also determined in its aim to provide its students with cultural training through innovative courses of
study. Founded as a point of reference for teaching in the sectors of languages and communication, it has now also become a centre of excellence in the fields of tourism and the exploitation of cultural heritage. With its 4 Faculties, First Cycle Degree Courses, Second Cycle Degree Courses, numerous Master's Courses and post-experience courses, the University offers a complete range of courses at all levels.
The mission of IULM University is to train and teach professionals capable of taking on the challenges and grasping the opportunities emerging from international markets and scenarios, while also shaping men and women aware of their own being and worth.
IULM guarantees its students deep cultural awareness and a solid university education - a mix of theory and practice: it adopts an integrated approach, which has proved to be extremely useful not only in helping students successfully enter the world of work, but also in helping them find personal satisfaction in their lives.
IULM University has always seen itself as a pioneer: over the years it has been able to foresee trends and adapt to change, operating as a dynamic interlocutor in a constantly evolving system. Today it is a well-established institution in the socioeconomic mechanisms of its area of influence: a privileged condition that allows it to approach important non-academic bodies and institutions in order to propose joint projects that can produce added value for teaching and research.
The Master’s degree in International Communication is an international Master’s degree provided by IULM University in partnership with three prestigious European universities specialised in public relations and communication. The MIC offers the opportunity to study in different universities and to acquire a specialisation targeted at global communication.
The Master’s degree in International Communication (MIC) is a postgraduate programme entirely in English lasting 18 months and aimed at graduates in the communication disciplines or related subjects. By attending the MIC Master’s degree course you will be able to study in different universities all over Europe and thus obtain dual recognition.
The MIC is a full-time programme lasting 3 semesters. The first semester (Professionalising Communication) has a core curriculum in which you will get training on the basic tools of communication, and takes place in one of the three partner universities. The second semester (Communication Professional in Context) is oriented towards specialisation and is held in another of the partner universities. The specialisation depends on the programme offered by the university chosen for the second semester. The third semester involves writing a thesis, under the joint supervision of the two partner universities.
The certificate awarded on completion of the study path consists in a double recognition: a Master’s degree from each of the two partner universities and an overall certificate from the consortium.
The three European universities which, with IULM, take part in the Hofstede Geert Consortium are: Metropolitan University (Leeds); Universitas Vilnensis (Vilnius); Hanze University Groningen.
The MIC trains international communications professionals who are capable of working in a multicultural context and of anticipating global changes. Experts and consultants in Corporate Communication, International Media Relations, Public Relations, Intercultural Relations and European Public Affairs.
