The communication industry needs to form new professionals who understands the business from the media, creative and publisher perspective and the best way to learn from each group is to work for them.

“Our ambition is to attract the best minds in the country, their background is not so important, but one thing they must have, passion for the communication industry. We are all excited about this.“ says Maja Siösteen”, Operating Office at Nord DDB
The idea took shape when Ali and Joakim Flodin, Sales director at Schibsted were discussing the difficulty to find good talents that had the competence to understand the full scope of our industry challenges. Those coming from media could not see the other two big pillars of developing communication at its best. Anders, had the same view but from the opposite seat. They agreed that something had to be done. Ali called Maja and the program was born.
“This is a unique opportunity for those interested in media and communication and wants to be able to build brands from every perspective,” says Anders Nylander, Director of Sales & Inventory at Schisbted
