Corporate communication is an art in and of itself. An art that needs to translate clear economic guidelines into creativity. Leipzig advertisers, PR agencies and media service providers act as intermediaries between businesses and the community. These agencies' profiles range from generalists to specialists and they can count on well-trained junior staff members from the university landscape to support their work.


More than 600 agencies and service providers work in the corporate communications sector. Every day they prove not only that they are in step with the times when it comes to creation, conception and technical implementation, but that they also know how to accelerate it. Several agencies are well established and have a supra-regional reach. Creative minds are also continuously founding small companies to make a name for themselves or their network in the market. The Marketing Club e.V. (site only in german) consolidates and represents the interests of the industry and annually awards the Marketing Prize (site only in german) for clever and successful marketing concepts.


In advertising and public relations, Leipzig's university landscape proves that it has the highest standards of quality and education. Leipzig University, with its master's degree in Communication Management, is one of the best in Germany. Marketing graduates from Leipzig's Graduate School of Management are also highly sought after by international companies.
