Module description

This module is the culmination of marketing communications studies.

It is recommended to those wishing to enter into marketing communications/brand management careers in both client and agency organisations.

The module emphasises a student centred orientation that is based around case method. Students are given the opportunity to play the role of marketing communications executives in determining, producing and defending the development of a campaign plan in response to a marketing communications brief.
