On April 30, 2013, I met with several faculty members at the new Institute of Communication at Tallinn University in Tallinn, Estonia: Kaja Tampere, Professor and Founding Director of the Institute, and Josep Soler-Carbonell, Associate Professor of Intercultural Communication.
Tallinn University is in much the same situation as the University of Macau, interested in gaining an international reputation, and attracting international students. A new Communication Management master’s program started in the autumn of 2012, as well as a minor in International Journalism studies, both of which offer courses in English.
While in Tallinn, I also connected with Hando Sinisalu, Founder and CEO of Best Marketing International. He organizes international conferences on such topics as digital marketing. For those interested in using social media for marketing, his website provides wonderful case studies of best practices.
The old city of Tallinn is a UNESCO world heritage site, with buildings dated as early as the 1200s. But it also has a noticeable Art Nouveau influence, as can be seen in the Dragon Gallery.
