Section Description

Strategic Corporate Communication focuses on the strategic management of communication in profit and not-for-profit corporate settings. The course examines public communications functions and strategic messaging for internal and external audiences beyond the market environment (e.g., political engagement, public affairs/lobbying, investor/donor relations, cross-cultural/globalization, social media, corporate social responsibility). The course integrates the insights of practicing corporate communication professionals with the concepts and academic approaches of communication theory. Ultimately, students will have a broad understanding of the different roles and functions involved in strategic communications within contemporary global society.
