The MSc Applied Corporate Brand Management is composed of two pathways: the MSc in Applied Corporate Brand Management which is a standard postgraduate offering and the MSc in Applied Corporate Brand Management (with Professional Practice).

The MSc in Applied Corporate Brand Management (with Professional Practice) incorporates a compulsory work placement component at a company or a consultancy of 16 weeks. The unique feature of the work placement distinguishes the programme from other Masters in the country.

The programme covers issues of branding in blue chip companies, the service industry, banks, petroleum companies, lifestyle organisations, corporate brand heritage, nation and place branding

The core contents of branding are examined at the corporate level rather than at the product level. In other words, teaching on the programme focuses on branding of the corporation rather than branding the product. The focus on corporate branding considers the following components:

corporate identity
corporate image and reputation
corporate design
corporate culture
corporate behaviour
corporate brand structure and brand strategy

Students undertake a project in collaboration with branding firms as part of their consultancy-based dissertation option. Examples include projects that are concerned with measuring the corporate image and ascertaining brand success of a chosen corporation.

The academic experts contributing to the programme are prominent world class researchers in the branding field, namely, Professor John Balmer and Professor T C Melewar from Brunel Business School, and Professor Stephen Greyser from Harvard Business School - who is also a Visiting Professor of Corporate Marketing on the programme.

Aims

In addition to offering an unrivalled opportunity to study and evaluate not only contemporary theory relating to corporate branding, the programme will also offer students the chance to examine current research relating to the management of an organisation’s corporate reputation, its corporate identity and its corporate communications.

Furthermore, graduates of this programme will gain a thorough understanding of the issues related to marketing at the corporate level and, equally importantly, a comprehensive appreciation of how to apply corporate branding and marketing theory and practice in the context of the contemporary organisation.

Special Features

The MSc in Applied Corporate Brand Management (with Professional Practice) incorporates a compulsory work placement component at a company or a consultancy of 16 weeks. The unique feature of the work placement distinguishes the programme from other Masters in the country.

Besides formal teaching and the Professional Practise, students are exposed to the myriad of practical applications of the theories taught, such as:

guest speakers from the industry and brand consultancies;
visits to brand companies and consultancies;
career talks and presentations;
visits to the Design Museum and Branding Museum in London.

Brunel Business School is home to The Centre for Research in Marketing which was created in 2005 with a mission to develop, promote and facilitate research on various aspects of marketing. The Centre's expertise ranges from branding, corporate identity, CRM, consumer behaviour, international marketing and marketing communications to political marketing, managing organisational creativity, marketing professional service firms, multi-channel marketing, e-learning and on-line banking.

Corporate Advisory Board

Advise faculty teaching on the programme about course content - especially in relation to practical aspects in the context of being relevant to the needs of industry.
Offer placements, projects, guest lecturers, field trips and other practitioner-based components.
Discuss current research themes and practical developments in the industry which inform the taught parts of the programme.

Introduction

Understanding, translating and communicating brand stories graphically: it's what today's key branding designers do. Driven by intelligent enquiry and evaluation, MA Graphic Branding and Identity challenges the whole meaning of graphic branding. Explore the strategic thinking underlying brands and look at how that strategy can drive the creative expression.

Content

Driven by intelligent enquiry and evaluation, this programme encourages students to challenge what is understood about the meaning of graphic branding. It explores the strategic thinking underlying brands and focuses on how that strategy can drive the creative expression.

Look around you and you will see examples of the power of brands - on the High Street, within organisations and in the media. From Coca Cola to Virgin, the most successful brands are worth billions.

This MA course focuses on the role of visual identity within branding. The aim is to produce versatile and creative practitioners who understand design within a business, social and cultural context.

It addresses the subject from a broad perspective, covering individual, group, cultural, national, international, corporate and commercial identities. You will be encouraged to look critically at the graphic elements which make up a contemporary visual identity. The emphasis is on practical design, supported by theoretical components and the application of clear research methodologies. As well as developing a deeper knowledge of branding and graphic design, you will gain an understanding of how to develop brand strategies and propositions. An important part of the course involves developing an independent personal project that investigates these principles and their application.

Learning at this level will be about research, intellectual engagement, discovery, interaction and change. The final product for us is not in itself the goal - it is the research, exploration, evaluation and intellectual understanding of branding and identity that makes this MA distinctive.

The strength of the Master in Fashion Communication and Styling is the combination of theoretical contents, analysis and study of the manufacturers of the most successful fashion, and practical activities, carried out in collaboration with companies and industry professional practitioners in an international context.

The course aims to form a Fashion Communication Coordinator, a professional able to create and carry on a communication strategy for a fashion brand. Since the visual communication of the brand has now become essential, the course gives special emphasis to the study of styling, elaborated by practical exercises, designed to represent the market values and the aesthetics of the brand effectively.

The fashion communication expert must have a good understanding of the trends of a particular sector of the market, being able to develop new techniques of dissemination of information and to manage communication processes typical of the fashion world.

After an initial study of the fashion industry from an historical, cultural and visual perspective, participants acquire knowledge about the communication process of fashion: from the structure of a press office with his organization and its activities, to the organization and management of a fashion show as a moment of visibility and strengthening of a brand identity up to the publishing world and events.

The teaching methodology examines the communication through different media and forms of expression linked to them (publishing, styling, web, new media, advertising, corporate events).

Part of the course is dedicated to the activities of the stylist: from the structure of a photographic set - organization, technical tools for professional photography and the lights, the still life study - to the iconographic research. The realization of photographic services allows participants to gain experience in the field, applying the theoretical knowledge and practical tools acquired during the course.

The Master culminates in a presentation of the final project, a summary of all the classes in which the student develops the insights gained during the educational pathway.

GRADUATES OF THE MFA PROGRAM IN TRANSPORTATION DESIGN WILL BE INNOVATORS, IN AUTOMOTIVE DESIGN AND ALL ASPECTS OF MOBILITY, ALWAYS WITH AN EYE TOWARD THE FUTURE

Building on your art and creativity, the College’s MFA program in Transportation Design will bring you together with other bright, forward-thinking students from design and engineering disciplines who want to delve into the invention and entrepreneurial aspects of transportation design.

In this program, you will take on the role of “designer as inventor,” and learn how to integrate innovation with real-world business strategy, including business practices, research, brand identity, vehicle architecture and mobility as a system. The curriculum will lead you through a complete design process – extensive research, sketching and 3D rendering, animation, core competencies analysis and more – and will include special projects that explore innovation through forms and materials, functionality and engineering. It’s a unique approach that will teach you how to combine creativity and research with business realities to create new brand value.

Studying at CCS will put you at the very center of transportation design. In the College’s studios and labs – housed in the same building where Harley Earl, the first modern automotive designer, and other renowned researchers and designers pioneered groundbreaking vehicles – an automotive executive or other industry leader is very likely to stop in to engage informally with students.
