The program is aimed at experienced communication professionals working in the governmental and non-governmental sectors and business organizations across a wide range of industries where communication is considered as the critical competency to advance an organization’s goals and mission. Over the course of these studies, students will acquire a sharpened strategic mindset and will become prepared to work successfully as communication leaders and offer strategic counseling in communication to any organization. The program offers an integral view of strategic communication management and the role of leadership in order to achieve meaningful, purposeful, and ethical relations between individuals, organizations, in the national and global contexts.
To accommodate international students, the program combines several intensive executive-education weeks in Latvia as well as allows remote learning through online seminars and exercises. Industry internships with the university's partners or at student-determined organizations/businesses are an integral part of the program.
