Lugano, Switzerland, January 29 2013 – The Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management, the confederation of the world's major public relations and communication management associations and institutions, today awarded scholarships to five participants in the Executive Master of Science in Communications Management (EMSCom) at Università della Svizzera italiana (USI).


As part of its long-term strategic partnership with USI, one of Europe’s leading academic institutions focused on public relations and communication management, the Global Alliance provides annual scholarships to deserving EMSCom applicants living and working outside Switzerland.

We are confident they will contribute to our global mission to raise standards, share knowledge, strengthen our global professional community and practise public relations in the public interest.”
