Course 3: Corporate Communication (10 ECTS)
The main goal of the course is to equip the students with the skills necessary to develop and solve communication projects for companies and organizations based on an understanding of the company’s or organization’s overall communication strategy and values.
The students will gain knowledge of the theories and concepts on which organizational and strategic communication is based and will cultivate the tools needed to decode the values and policies that are arranged within communication/ public relations. These include tools for the analysis and assessment of communications products, market segments and target groups. As a result, students are expected to be able to analyse the company's/organization's identity and goals and subsequently address both in their communication assignment.
The students will also take on a practical task, which will entail working in close cooperation with external clients, with the aim of gaining an understanding of the "real life" framework that informs the development and production of communication tasks in companies and organizations. This will provide the students with individual "practical experience" in preparation for the impending internship. The students will be required to produce a video/TV production which must be submitted either as completed feature / program or as a partially completed dummy accompanied by a description of the concept / format for the overall solution. The clients will subsequently provide feedback and critique the product and process.
