What will I learn?

MSc Management (Advertising and Corporate Communications) is perfect if you do not have a first degree in business or marketing, or relevant work experience in management.

As one of Essex Business School’s unique Master of Management pathways, you will study a core spine of management and organisational issues in term one. You will then specialise in advertising and corporate communications in your second term where you will explore issues like multi-channel communications management, consumer targeting and content generation. Through these optional modules, you can align your course with your career aspirations so that you graduate with a perfectly tailored master’s degree in marketing and management.

MSc Management (Advertising and Corporate Communications) is for you if you are interested in issues such as: the ethics of social media advertising; the pitfalls of user-generated content; relationship management through communications. We ensure that your education in management is both theoretical and practical, allowing you to develop expertise in a chosen area of international management. In your last term you’ll have the opportunity to conduct a case study of the performance of an organisation during a short-term placement.
