Monika Wnuk (MSJ14, IMC19)

“I owe so much to the Medill faculty and network! I graduated from both the MSJ and IMC programs and I can honestly say that I use the knowledge I gained from both degrees on a daily basis. My journalism professors taught me to be a good storyteller—to pursue unique and meaningful stories and to spend time getting to know subjects and their communities. Going back to school for the the IMC program, I learned how to apply that storytelling in another way—to strive to really understand and serve unique audiences. In all my courses—across brand strategy, consumer insight, analytics and more—the audience was at the core of every decision. Now, in every role I take on, I’m able to bring both skill sets to the table whether I’m writing stories, documenting communities through photography, or developing, executing and evaluating IMC strategies. Medill gave me the skills, confidence and a great network of friends with similar passions to support me throughout my career.”
