Also new are, amongst others advanced courses in PR planning, time management and working organisation. They are aimed at the advanced who seek to extend their knowledge. With “Negotiation Skills” and “Intercultural Communication”, the MC Academy expands its international workshop programme. Colleagues from the international MC network agencies regularly participate in the seminars.Also, the MONDAY LECTURES with prestigious speakers and the PRACTICE series have become well established.
