This course introduces you to the twin subjects of marketing and business communications where principles of EBM are applied to audience selection, message framing, stakeholder identification and problem solving. In business communication, you will have the opportunity to develop your communication skills by understanding theories of communication, and applying them to the practical aspects of tailoring a message to a targeted audience. By reflecting on your own work, and the work of your peers, you will gain insight into the processes of developing your own communication style. In stakeholder-based marketing, you will focus on the use of marketing concepts to create, communicate and deliver marketing solutions that are of value to an identified business audience. This includes engaging the needs of different audience stakeholders to ensure an ethically balanced approach between the needs of the organisation, market and society at large.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Determine stakeholder interests and requirements
- Employ evidence-based decision making to determine appropriate methods of communicating to stakeholders
- Establish the relevant stakeholder groups that the organisation needs to address in their marketing activity
- Justify the choice of target audience for marketing communication
- Integrate stakeholder knowledge and communication to solve customer needs
- Deliver effective communication that reflects the complexity of real-world stakeholder issues
The custom ebook “MKTG7260 Marketing and Stakeholder Communications” will be used for this course. It will be provided to students at no cost to them. A link will be shared where the ebook can be accessed. For intermittent access to Internet, there is an app where the book is stored locally for reading.
Compiled by: Katerina Kormusheva, based on a combination of 3 different textbooks:
- The Business Communications Handbook

The Australian National University commits to embedding the values of academic integrity in our teaching and learning. We ensure that all members of our community understand how to engage in academic work in ways that are consistent with, and actively support academic integrity.
