With the installment of a new cooperation with the Universidad Austral in Argentina, the Media and Communication Management Group lead by Prof. Dr. Andreas Will has achieved to set up a new possibility for the international mobility of the IfMK’s academic community. This benefit might even be extended to all interested students of the Department of Economic Sciences and Media.

The Universidad Austral ranks among Argentina’s top two universities at the QS World University Rankings and QS Latin American University Rankings. It also ranks among the top ten universities in Latin America and among the world’s top 30 universities which are under 50 years old.

The new exchange agreement is expected to be ready to start working in the Summer Semester of 2016 and will allow our bachelor and master students to go to study for one semester at the School of Communications of Universidad Austral (UA) located in Buenos Aires. It might also facilitate working/research visits and short-stays for academic staff with their counterparts in both directions. Of course, we are already looking forward to equally welcome UA’s students and researchers.

A fundamental step towards this new agreement has been the academic collaboration between Prof. Dr. Ethel Pis Diez (UA), Prof. Dr. Andreas Will and Abelardo Medel, M.A. (TU Ilmenau) in the field of International Media Management.

Prof. Dr. Ethel Pis Diez has already delivered a Skype lecture from Argentina to bachelor students participating in the Media Management II Seminar at TU Ilmenau last year, and is scheduled to do it once more. Moreover, she visited our campus in June 2015 as an invited lecturer within the master specialization module “Glocalization Strategies for Media and Communication Management” lead by Abelardo Medel.
