Postgraduate study for the Part-time MA Strategic Communication at Lancashire Business School will suit people who want to develop their career in strategic communication, corporate communication, public relations or internal communication.
Effective and efficient communication is a core requirement for the success of organisations in all sectors and in all nations. However, it continues to be a challenging goal for many organisations. The MA Strategic Communication responds to the growing world-wide demand for independent thinking communication strategists with the knowledge and skills to enable organisations to communicate effectively in dynamic, diverse environments. It is for people who appreciate that communication practice needs to evolve away from a media savvy tactical focus on press, publicity and information provision to a business savvy strategic focus on relationship management and organisational positioning. Graduates will be able to help organisations manage their stakeholder relationships through innovative strategic communication.
