The Hopkins MBA/MA in Communication prepares managers in public and media relations, advertising, crisis communication, organizational development, and risk communication. It provides managers with the knowledge and skills to solve communication problems in the workplace, use new media to transform existing business practices, reach out to media and clientele, and manage corporate images. This program enables communication professionals to expand their knowledge and skills in business and management, preparing them to lead nonprofit, public sector, or commercial enterprises. Students in these degrees complete both the professional managerial education requirements of the MBA and the advanced disciplinary requirements of a specialized MA in Communication.
