This study programme seeks:
- To expand students’ theoretical and practical knowledge of corporate communication and related skills, i.e. skills within all communication types involving private or public companies, organisations and institutions and their stakeholders.
- To provide students with the qualifications needed to undertake – individually and/ or in collaboration with others – relevant functions within corporate communication at a strategic and/or operational level in private or public companies, organisations and institutions on the basis of the knowledge and skills acquired.
- To provide students with the qualifications needed to carry out scientific research.
In short, the programme focuses on the strategic management of communication processes in private or public companies, organisations and institutions.
The first semester includes Corporate Communication, Strategic Management in Organisations in a Communicative Perspective and Scientific Methods.
The second semester includes Corporate Communication in Change and Crisis Situations, Stakeholder Relations as well as two electives. The electives may be chosen from among the electives offered under the Master’s programme or from the fields of, e.g., business administration or language offered under another Master’s programme at School of Business and Social Sciences or at another institution of higher education.
The third semester includes an elective and then you can choose between three teaching profiles and a projct-based study. The purpose of the profiling part of the programme is to provide students with an opportunity for theoretical as well as practical specialisation within a specific field of corporate communication.
In your fourth semester you will write your master thesis. The topic for your final thesis is chosen freely, but must be approved by your academic advisor.
Graduates from the Master of Arts in Corporate Communication are readily able to work in national and international companies and organisations as strategic employees at management level.
The work will typically be focussed on communication, public relations, corporate branding, or in connection with a marketing division, in which our graduates have the full responsibility for planning the strategic communication with internal and external stakeholders.
