Many of our students take advantage of the opportunity to study for a semester at our Los Angeles Center.

“In a word, my LA experience was phenomenal. It was the best decision I could have made for myself.”
Held 2 internships: The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and PMK/HBH Public Relations. Realized television production not for him—enjoyed the show's atmosphere but not the work. Went full time with PMK. Duties ranged from copying coverage for clients like Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston, and Johnny Depp, to press kit compilation.
Recognized for work ethic and writing skills. Hired full time for Special Events team. Worked
with 4 people putting together all press and coverage for The American Music Awards, Teen Vogue
Fashion Party, E! Entertainment Pre-Emmy Party, Lamborghini opening in Calabasas, Movies ROCK!
Presented by Conde Nast, and more.
“I was now actually working as an employee of the company, rather than an intern which enabled me to really see what it was like to plan and execute a full media campaign for major events. It was an unreal experience. At the end of my semester, I was offered a job with PMK and hopefully I'll be able to return there in May of '09!"
