MS70095E International Advertising and Corporate Communication


This module introduces you to the principles of paid, owned and earned media at both practical and strategic levels. It develops communication skills in writing, speaking and presentation, with the ability to find and deliver news items and other information to industry standard. The module aims to develop skills in establishing and maintaining contacts with people and opinion formers across the media through understanding the parameters in which media practitioners work. It draws awareness of the implications of international media and communication issues beyond regional and national business interests, with a focus on globalisation, cultural identity and new technologies, including web-based news services and social networking sites.

The practical component addresses the skills required to function at the required level. The strategic level provides a forum for understanding, exploring, debating and critically appraising the dynamics between the disparate yet closely interlinked areas of paid, owned and earned media within the broader context of corporate communications.

The module encourages a high degree of student participation. Current and past students have foundthe participative process very stimulating and exciting and that it helps develop their confidence as communicators. We hope you will enjoy this learning experience.

The aims of the module are:

To enable students to appreciate the body of theoretical knowledge and concepts that underpin the subject areas of paid, owned and earned media.

• To recognise and critique the principles upon which the advertising, marketing communications, public relations and media industries are organised, practised and regulated.

• To assess critically the relationship dynamics inherent in the divergent functions of their respective roles and the implications for corporate communication.

• To understand the tools and techniques that are applied by advertising, marketing communications and public relations professionals and media practitioners in a variety of contexts and through a variety of audiences that inform practice and strategies

In the contemporary communications industry, it is increasingly essential to acquire a fuller and more complete understanding of the convergence of paid, owned and earned media as used to achieve organisational objectives and manage reputation. This course provides students with information and insights about contemporary media practices: how messages are created and framed; why we respond to messages the way we do, and how to employ communications to advance organisational goals.  Topics will be explored in three-hour sessions consisting of lecture, problem briefings and responses. The sessions will be supported with feedback on your work in thesession. You will work on the development of a number of projects to demonstrate what you are learning, and you will submit two assessments during the module.

• Weekly drop-in support online during office hours published on Blackboard
