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.

Summer research period
Research dissertation [60 credits]
You must complete a satisfactory dissertation to be awarded your MSc. This piece of work, undertaken in your third term and over the summer, gives you the opportunity to apply the techniques and theories you have learned during the taught modules.
Supervision often starts with small groups of students studying similar topics meeting with their supervisors, who then guide students in deciding on the focus for their individual dissertations.
The dissertation itself normally consists of a literature review which drives a piece of empirical work, involving either qualitative or quantitative research.
