Your programme of study

Communication is one of the most vital parts to our work and lives and ability to succeed in life beyond basic communication levels. 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 and organisational level and this programme gives you a multidisciplinary approach to the area.  You can discover and fine tune your skills in negotiation, create rapport, provide leadership and interpret various issues to interaction which prevent growth, movement or improvements within an organisation and your business relationships. This is an essential language 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.

The importance of marketing communication in delivering clear, consistent and competitive messages about an organisation and its products is crucial to organisational success. Rather than seeing marketing communications as creating favourable brand images merely in the eyes of consumers, the field has witnessed a renewed focus on the effects of communication on the multiple stakeholders organisations address, including their employees and the media.

Why study Marketing Communications at Middlesex University?

The course also has a strong emphasis on the application of theory to practice through activities such real-life case studies, problem-solving exercises and a residential week with industry professionals

The course focuses on three strands key to the field; ‘Strategic Analysis and Thinking’ enhances understanding of markets, and the application of critical and analytic methods in solving communications problems; ‘Execution’ develops skills around writing and presenting communications plans and advertising briefs; and ‘Tools, Media and Settings’ contextualises the use of both traditional and innovative modes of communication in different settings, whether social, national or global.

Course Highlights

Course content

What will you study on the MSc/PGDip/PGCert Corporate and Marketing Communications?
The course allows you to choose from a range of optional modules which build upon the content of the core modules and explore more specialised and niche aspects of communications. For example if you want to focus on marketing communications then modules on advertising, experiential marketing and events would be an appropriate route to take. If you have an interest in consumers and stakeholders within a communications context then modules on psychology, analytics and research would suit you. For a more strategic communications approach then modules on PR, crisis communications and cross-cultural communication would be the pathway to follow. You will also have the opportunity to complete a dissertation project in an area of marketing communications that you have a particular interest in and matches with your career specialism.
