MSc Corporate Communications and Reputation Management

Alliance Manchester Business School - The University of Manchester

In a world where organisations are under increasing public scrutiny, protecting a company's corporate reputation and sending out the right messages are vital for survival. Gain a career in corporate communications, public relations consultancy or in managing corporate brands.

From corporate social responsibility to crisis management, communication is becoming an increasingly major part of business strategy and a growing area of employment. Using the latest research and details of current best practice, you learn how to manage relationships with key stakeholders, including employees, and promote a positive corporate reputation.
