Study programme

An important question within Corporate Communication is: How are communication strategies being developed, approved, implemented and what are the effects of those strategies on the publics? On the one hand, the track focuses on external communication, teaching you how to build and maintain a corporate image, reputation and identity. A vital aspect to note in addition is the public responsibility of organisations, especially in relation to public opinion and the public debate in traditional and social media. The relationship with the press, public, media and stakeholders is discussed elaborately and crisis communication is touched upon in compliance with these relationships.

On the other hand, the track focuses on communication within corporations, such as organisational culture, communication and the new way of working, social media and employees and how this all is implemented during change processes.
