Who we are

GlobCom was created in 2002 by Dr. Volker Stoltz, the chairman of the GlobCom Institute, lecturer at Erfurt University, and former European CEO for the global PR firm Weber Shandwick. This project was the evolution of an older Dr. Stoltz’s project – the professor initiated a co-operation within the European Weber Shandwick’s offices, where were formed culturally diverse teams to creat advanced communication concepts for specific clients.

Since then, GlobCom gives students of the 2nd and 3rd years of strategic communication (public relations) undergraduate programs the opportunity to work with colleagues from different parts of the world and with different experiences, enriching them both professionally and personally. That being said, GlobCom prepares future professionals for the global world, making them aware of the existing cultural differences and teaching them how to handle modern communication tools

I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world."
