This course involves online teaching. Check Class Summary for more details.

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.
