MSc Corporate Communications and Reputation Management / Overview
Year of entry: 2017
Degree awarded MSc Duration 12 months full-time. Entry requirements
We normally look for a UK bachelor degree with first or upper second class honours, or the overseas equivalent, in any discipline.
When assessing your academic record, we take into account your grade average, position in class, references and the standing of the institution where you studied your qualification.
In a world where organisations are under increasing public scrutiny, protecting a company’s corporate reputation and sending out the right messages are vital for survival. Gain a career in corporate communications, public relations consultancy or in managing corporate brands.
From corporate social responsibility to crisis management, communication is becoming an increasingly major part of business strategy and a growing area of employment. Using the latest research and details of current best practice, you learn how to manage relationships with key stakeholders, including employees, and promote a positive corporate reputation.
Communication specialists who can take a strategic view of business are in high demand and those with a thorough understanding of current communication technology are in short supply. We help to meet that demand by giving you a unique experience combining advanced knowledge of up-to-the-minute communication skills and techniques with case studies and practical examples of best practice. You graduate equipped with analytical tools which can be used across all sectors and will give you a competitive edge in the marketplace.
We have worked to build a course that is tailored to enhance your ability in the job market. We specifically aim to develop an experience that comprises curriculum content, student interaction and building relationships with members of faculty to equip you with the analytical tools and instruments that will allow you to be at the forefront in the marketplace.
