MSIN3002 - Marketing Communications
This course is an updated version of MSIN3002 – The Marketing Process. The content has been adjusted to permit a wider participation. This course is now available as an option for IMB programme students as well as 3rd/4th year students across UCL.
Marketing Communications is a core activity within business; it spans not only the interactions between the business and its customers but the way it interacts with all its stakeholder groups, from Government to local communities and its own employees. Marketing Communications is a complex subject and draws on a number of disciplines including behavioural psychology, linguistics and sociology.
Students studying this course will gain an insight into the way in which organisations use marketing communications, the key theories and concepts which underpin the way in which organisations communicate, and develop an insight into the reasoning behind some of the activities undertaken by organisations. During the course we will look at a number of case studies of the strategies and activities undertaken by organisations. The course aims to be practically based with group working on a variety of communications problems.
The module organiser is Jane Burns-Nurse from Department of Management Science and Innovation, UCL.
