Year 2: Specialisation in London

The specialisation in Business & Innovation is hosted by City, University of London in the United Kingdom.

The Business & Innovation specialisation draws on the the Department of Journalism's expertise in both the theory and practice of journalism. It recognises that journalism is now charged with reporting a global political and financial landscape that is continuously less predictable, at the very time that journalism itself is facing an unprecedented need to innovate to remain relevant and viable.

The specialisation focusses on how journalism reports a changing business world, and how journalism itself is innovating in response to changing economic and editorial models. Business & Innovation makes use of its location in one of the world's media capitals, close to one of the world's major financial districts, to take advantage of its network of media contacts.

You will be coached by experienced, respected and veteran journalists while having access to top-tier equipment.

An active study environment

London is a truly inspiring place to connect with everything you would want when joining the Mundus Journalism programme. Cultural diversity, challenging perspectives of international affairs and a never-ending agenda of activities are everywhere to foster a professional career and to enrich your personal development.

There is an outstanding number of extracurricular activities available from City, University of London -  so you will be better integrated and supported during your stay in London. You can discuss how to present your CV, receive entrepreneurship advice and share difficulties with adapting to London.

As a Mundus Journalism student, you are also welcome in classes that are not part of the official programme. While the final semester is dedicated to the master’s thesis, you can choose to take additional classes ranging from sports journalism to foreign languages.

As for my personal development, I consider those two years the most important years of my life so far. I’d always choose to study the Mundus programme again, and I can highly recommend it to anyone with an international mindset who is interested in business journalism.
