Communication is one of the most vital parts to our work and life. Ability to succeed in life beyond basic communication levels opens significant doors in terms of business, successful organisational growth, great human relationships and ability to grow opportunities. This programme allows you to understand and explore just how much we communicate effectively and with each other and how we interact with the wider world in doing so. Communication is vital to success on an individual basis and at organisational level and this programme gives you a multidisciplinary approach to the discipline. 

You can discover and fine tune your skills in negotiation, create rapport, provide leadership and interpret various issues involved in any interaction which prevent growth, movement or communication improvements within an organisation and your business relationships. This is an essential language to us all which you can apply to just about any known business and organisation area. Professional communication can be the difference between the failure or success of projects, organisations and people management, plus how your organisation is seen by the rest of the world.  Specific business areas we look at are in healthcare, law and the energy industry in Aberdeen so that we can utilise our networks but these skills are applicable to any business discipline or institution.

You acquire skills in organisational negotiation, leadership, rapport management and interaction with a range of professional institutions and business organisations. You study a variety of intercultural communications and professional contexts to uncover the true meaning of data in language analysis for example.  The breadth of opportunities for a professional with communications expertise is immense and it can be anything from the more obvious communications, marketing and change management positions to HR, teaching, PR and crisis management.
