Public Relations, Executive MA
This is an Executive Programme designed for those already working in public relations (PR). It takes place over two years and is delivered on Thursday evenings and all day Friday monthly with an additional intensive three-day workshop scheduled once a year. Study follows the academic year commencing in September 2008 with a study break during August.
Reputation management is increasingly being seen as a way of delivering competitive advantage. This programme looks at PR across sectors and disciplines equipping practitioners with enhanced practical skills, as well as a greater appreciation of the strategic nature of PR, its management, theories which underpin practice, the role PR plays in delivering corporate strategy and critical issues affecting the discipline.
Students build on their own knowledge of PR whilst developing a critical theoretical perspective which will inform their own developing PR practice.
The course also provides an opportunity to gain the dual qualification of the CIPR Diploma.
