Education in Communication Management

CEPEC members teach courses within the curriculum related to Communication Management, in both bachelor and master. These courses focus on the persuasive force of communicative messages.

Communication is a strategic tool employed by both profit and non-profit organizations in order to influence the knowledge, perceptions and behavior of stakeholders.

Special attention is paid to persuasive communication through new media, because they strongly change the way advertisers, companies and non-profit organizations communicate with stakeholders. (e.g., e-WOM, mobile marketing, e-commerce, advergames, crisis communication through social media, etc.).
