Ever since it was founded in 1993, the Academy has specialised in providing cost-effective and high quality training for management executives and skilled personnel working in the publishing and media business.
While the organisation’s initial mission in the 1990s was to develop a range of continuing-education courses for the publishing and media sector, the ADM soon extended its offers and services. Today, our clients often come from other business sectors, from industrial companies as well as government departments, educational institutions and charities.
With over 3,700 participants in its training programs, 280 different short courses and around 120 in-company trainings each year, the ADM is now one of Germany’s leading media academies.
Having specialised in the media business, the ADM offers a wide range of classroom-based short courses, covering the whole range of media skills - from editing to software and digital publishing. They are between one and ten days long.
The ADM’s headquarters are at the “Literaturhaus”, a listed building in the heart of Munich. Varying in size, the rooms there are suitable for a wide range of events.
A non-profit-making limited company since 1999, the ADM is owned by ten shareholders. This broad base of ownership gives the Academy the scope to create a rich and comprehensive variety of educational offerings in each of the main areas of media work. Being a non-profit organisation, the ADM additionally pursues the goal of offering high-quality education at comparatively little cost.
