This is an exciting time for Marketing Communications! It seems that the world of communication is changing almost daily: many have declared the death of the 30 second television spot; marketers are constantly searching for new ways to communicate with consumers and the number of new media channels that they face keeps on growing. So, do we need to throw away the old text books on marketing communications and start from scratch? Well, yes and no. This course is designed to introduce you to the field of marketing communications and aims to increase your understanding of important issues in planning and evaluating marketing communications strategies and executions. By the end of this course, students should not only be familiar with a large body of marketing communication and advertising knowledge, but should also be able to apply this information to create and evaluate effective communication strategies and tactics.
The course covers the main following topics:
- Integrated marketing communications.
- Branding and naming.
- Public Relations and Sponsorships.

- Recognize different communication tools and correctly identify their strategic role for a company (e.g. match company communication goal with the relevant communication tool).
- Gain a broader and comprehensive understanding of marketing communication with an international perspective.
- Know how to evaluate results and achievable outcomes.
- Face-to-face lectures
- Guest speaker's talks (in class or in distance)

- Interactive class activities include class discussions on short incidents and marketing communication examples.
|Continuous assessment||Partial exams||General exam|
With the purpose of measuring the acquisition of the above-mentioned learning outcomes, the students’ assessment is based on three main components:

- In class exercises: taking part in the class group assignments benefit participants with a 0,5 points extra on their exam grade.
- Individual powerpoint work. A further 1 point extra bonus are given to those students that by the end of the course submit an individual assignment on communication goals, insights or creative appeals.
Students’ assessment is based on a written exam (open end and multiple choice questions) only based on the book contents.
