About

Why to study

The Media and Convergence Management programme at the University of Klagenfurt focuses on the fields of technical, media, content-related and cross-industry convergence. End devices such as smartphones and tablets take centre stage in technical or media convergence. Content-related convergence relates to the multiple use of content (e.g. film, computer games, books with similar themes/contents) and cross-industry convergence relates to the blurring of boundaries in the TIMES sector (technology, information, media, entertainment and security). These convergences constitute new challenges for companies, which is why skills in the fields of cultural studies and media studies, economics, and technical sciences are increasingly important.
