"If you want to stand out, creativity is key!"

Whether in our professional or personal lives, digital technology is everywhere. Everyone uses it to communicate and organise. The real question is whether we use computers and other tools to their full potential? Do we make them work for us?

A professional digital creative is able to make full use of the existing information technology to plan and organise projects, to keep track of budgets, to organise mailings, as well as generate state-of-the-art communication plans with visuals, sound, and imaging to make any project stand out and be successful.

In 2017, hardly anyone doubts that the future of news is digital and online.

The technological evolutions created challenges for ‘traditional journalism’, but also offer plenty of opportunities to cover news more creatively. A digital creative journalist possesses vital new skills: visual and digital storytelling, entrepreneurship and an international, crossmedia mindset.

Together with students from different nationalities and backgrounds you learn to use information technology in order to plan, coordinate, communicate and illustrate a professional project. You put your new knowledge and skills to the test in an integrated project in which you will take the role of the journalist in a multidisciplinary team.
