Testimonials

Adrienn Banhegni Public Relations Graduate (IAPR)

When choosing a PR course last year, I was trying to find an institute that is offering a practical course and at the same time it is really covering the most important topics of public relations. The assignments related to every single topic were very interesting and useful, not only to get an insight into the different areas of Public Relations, but also to fully understand and have the chance to work on the details, just as in real life. The evaluation of the assignments was very clear and encouraging. If you are interested in learning, I definitely recommend taking the course!

Dominique Beneli Lamon Public Relations Graduate (IAPR)

While the medium of information may have to be adjusted to meet current market digital media demands; it is at the very core of the course that the ability to read, adjust and respond to the needs of your target audience was learned, it is this foundation that has stood the test of time.
