Media City Berlin – HMKW is located right in the heart of Berlin, also known as “Mitte”.
Spread over three floors in a five-story building on Ackerstraße 76, the university offers students well-equipped, modern lecture rooms and the ideal technical equipment for their practical projects.
Thanks to the immediate surroundings of the capital city Berlin, students have the ideal conditions to be close to the action of the media business. There are plenty of options ranging from the daily newspapers Tagesspiegel or Berliner Zeitung to the headquarters of the public German TV station ARD located in the government district. Berlin is not just the head quarter of many media agencies, but also a popular location for major companies and well-known creative enterprises.
An ideal location for the degree programs of HMKW focusing on media and communication. Students have the opportunity to cooperate with well-known project partners and to apply their skills within internships.
When there are no lectures, students will never get bored, thanks to a variety of cultural and sportive events in the capital.
