MSc Corporate Communications and Reputation Management


Course Description

In a world where organisations are under increasing public scrutiny, protecting a company’s corporate reputation and communicating effectively are vital for survival.

Take the first step to a career in corporate communications, public relations consultancy or in managing corporate brands.

Using the latest research and current best practice, you learn how to communicate effectively with key stakeholders, including employees, and promote a positive corporate reputation. Communication specialists who can take a strategic view of business are in high demand and those with a thorough understanding of current communication technology are in short supply.

We help to meet that demand by giving you a unique experience combining advanced knowledge of up-to-the-minute communication skills and techniques, with case studies and practical examples of best practice. You graduate equipped with analytical tools which can be used across all sectors and will give you a competitive edge in the marketplace.
