"The media landscape is rapidly changing and is constantly presenting new professional challenges for journalists and media managers. For this reason, the academic education of young sector professionals may not be based on a curriculum mired in tradition, but must flexibly adapt to the needs of the professional reality and integrate practical experience. The Hamburg Media School’s structure as a public private partnership offers the ideal conditions for the fulfillment of this requirement.
I am therefore very pleased to be able to continue the successful work of my predecessor, Ines Plog, and to generate new initiatives together with partners from the media economy, as well as with representatives of our city and Chamber of Commerce. Here I rely on our cooperation with Dr. Insa Sjurts, under whose excellent direction the employees of the Hamburg Media School and our exemplary circle of instructors have already seen glowing results over the past years. Our publishers’ group has seen a range of proof of the high professional qualifications of our graduates.
I wholeheartedly invite you, as friends and founders of the Hamburg Media School, to make a concrete contribution to a robust future media landscape in Germany. Well-educated journalists are indispensable to a functional democracy. Smart media managers work to secure their freedom to get right to the point."
