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.
Promote the interests of the programme within the academic and Corporate Brand Management communities.

Master's specialisation in Corporate Finance and Control

Understanding a firm’s finances and knowing how to deal with not just economic but also managerial, legal, and reporting aspects to strengthen and maximise enterprise value.
In a continuously globalising world economy, how can financial managers increase the value of the firm for their shareholders and stakeholders? How do managers figure out what the best investment is and how much to invest? How can and should a company finance its operations? The Master’s programme in Corporate Finance and Control provides you with the latest theory and research, focusing on all the important scientific and practical aspects that deal with the financial management and governance of modern firms.
You will learn about international standards of financial accounting and reporting methods, corporate finance and governance, firm valuation, mergers and acquisitions, as well as risk management and other advanced topics in corporate finance. Graduates of Corporate Finance and Control are well equipped for careers as corporate financial manager, financial controller, or business consultant in multinational companies as well as small and medium sized enterprises.

See the website http://www.ru.nl/masters/cfc

Why study Corporate Finance and Control at Radboud University?

- A sound foundation in corporate finance is integrated with modern institutional and behavioural insights, giving this Master’s specialisation a unique perspective.

- You will be confronted with both practical real-world business cases as well as the latest theoretical developments.

- You will be trained to think independently and critically about the way in which corporate finance can be applied in your professional field and you will develop skills that will make a difference in the highly competitive global labour market.

- You will be part of a new generation of finance professionals, who understand the economic and managerial implications of their decisions also from the perspective of modern institutional and behavioural insights.

- The specialisation pays special attention to global aspects of corporate finance, preparing students for a highly international career.

- Our lecturers are active in academic and applied research which allows them to incorporate the latest academic developments and practical issues. This will also enable you to actively participate in academic research in your Master’s programme.

- Professors and students interact in small groups, thus strengthening the academic atmosphere.

- Radboud University offers ‘Economics Plus’. Traditional economic models and business approaches are expanded with relevant knowledge from related disciplines such as psychology, teaching more in-depth knowledge that can be applied in today’s globalised world.

Tackling complex financial issues

We make sure that our Economics students have a strong background in both theory and practical real-world approaches. Within this specialisation of Economics, you will get a thorough understanding of state-of-the-art corporate finance integrated with modern institutional and behavioural insights. Understanding all the necessary facets will equip you with the knowledge and skills to tackle complex financial issues in today’s corporations.

Career prospects

Employers are increasingly looking for a new generation of financial managers, who understand both the economic and the business side of the financial workings of corporations and who can integrate this knowledge with institutional and behavioural insights to tackle a wide variety of problems. This Master’s specialisation will provide you with this in-depth knowledge and will teach you how to deal with today’s problems as a financial manager to strengthen a company’s finances and maximise its value.

Job positions

Our graduates have the necessary knowledge and skills to become financial manager, financial controller, or business consultant in multinational companies as well as small and medium sized enterprises. Careers as financial analyst, investment manager or general manager – thanks to your background in corporate finance and financial accounting – are also well within your reach.

Our approach to this field

This Master’s programme does not just look at raising and investing money, but also at controlling this process with proper financial accounting and reporting, governance and risk management. We want to educate a new generation of finance professionals, who understand the economic and managerial implications of their decisions also from the perspective of modern institutional and behavioural insights.

Due to globalisation there are very few companies that do not operate on an international scale, or at the very least interact with consumers, clients and/or partner organisations in other countries. Having a thorough knowledge of international issues has therefore become crucial for every financial manager and we pay special attention to these aspects in this specialisation. With internationalisation comes the complexity of different influences and systems. That is why at Radboud University, we also teach students how to be aware of the different institutional, cultural and psychological aspects of financial matters.

- Other specialisations of Economics
This specialisation looks at Finance from a firm’s perspective and at its positioning within financial markets. If you are more interested in Finance from a market perspective and how financial markets can be regulated, we suggest you take a look at our Master’s Financial Economics. Or if you want to discover the nitty-gritty of a company’s balance sheets and statements of financial position then Accounting and Control may be more interesting for you. And those wanting to know more about the trade relations between countries should take a look at our specialisation International Economics & Business.

Learning and Teaching

This programme involves both taught modules and a substantial dissertation component. Taught modules are delivered by a mixture of lectures and seminars. Although most lectures do encourage student participation, they are used primarily to introduce chosen topics, identify relevant concepts, and introduce the student to the main debates and ideas relevant to the chosen topic. They give students a framework of knowledge that students can then develop, and reflect on, through their own reading and study.

Seminars are smaller-sized, student-led classes. Students are expected to carry out reading prior to classes, and are usually set questions or problems to which to apply the knowledge they have developed. Through class discussion, or the presentation of student papers, students are given the opportunity to test and refine their knowledge and understanding, in a relaxed and supportive environment.

The number of contact hours in each module will reflect that module’s credit weighting. 15-credit modules will have, in total, 15 contact hours (of either lectures or seminars); 30-credit modules will have 30 contact hours. Students must accumulate, in total, between 90 and 120 credits of taught modules for the programme (depending upon the length of their dissertation).

In addition to their taught modules, all students must produce a dissertation of between 10,000 and 20,000 words. This is intended to be the product of the student’s own independent research. Each student is allocated a dissertation supervisor, and will have a series of (usually four) one-to-one meetings with their supervisor over the course of the academic year.

Finally, all taught postgraduate students on this programme, are encouraged to attend the various events, including guest lectures and seminars, organised through the School’s research centres, including the Institute for Commercial and Corporate Law, and Durham European Law Institute.
