The new graduates were honored in the presence of their families and friends, the university management and the lecturers – all of them supported them over the past years. Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ronald Freytag welcomed all attendees and wished them all the best for their future life journey and career.

Guest speaker Henning Krumrey, head of the department corporate communications at ALBA group, greeted all alumni as well. Moreover, he encouraged them to get involved in social responsibility and to increase the awareness of modern phenomena like fake news and hate speech. Especially, media professionals carry a major responsibility nowadays.


After this very emotional speech all alumni went on stage to receive their personal graduation certificates by their lecturers and Prof. Dr. Ronald Freytag. Last but not least four HMKW students got a special award for their excellent theses. Viktoria Stettler, student of the study program Media and event management thanked HMKW Berlin for the exciting study experience.
