Hometown: Basel, Switzerland 

 

I hold a Bachelors degree in Journalism & Media Sciences from the University of Zagreb (Croatia) and the University of Zurich, Switzerland. 

I have professional experience in large multinational companies within corporate communications and project management, working as a communications manager in a hospital chain in Switzerland. Before that role, I was project assistant at a multinational chemical company based in Switzerland. 

To me it was important to do a postgraduate course that offers modules which are relevant to the industry. In that way, I can connect the practical knowledge I already have gained through my work experience with the theoretical knowledge at QMU.

Edinburgh is a hub of all the best things to do, see and enjoy, in a city with some of the world's best universities - so it was an easy choice for me!

Having a master’s degree that focuses on Strategic Communications and Public Relations is a great benefit career wise. The study programme gives you new ideas and strategies which can be applied to the industry. 

 

 

"My QMU degree equipped me with lots of strategies and ideas."
Mario Previsic

The work load can get very intense, but professors are extremely helpful. There is definitely support available - you just have to ask for it!

I will start working for the Scottish Government  next semester at the Internal Communications department. 

My QMU degree equipped me with lots of strategies and ideas. I would now do things at work differently than before. 

After completing my course, I would like to work in people engagement- I liked this part of Internal Communications the most.
