Marketing & communications expertise
Economic progress and changed media-usage habits call for a rethink of communications addressed to customers. Past attempts by companies to respond to this change in structure have met with only moderate success, for the most part: thanks to the quantitative escalation of marketing activities – due to the use of new media channels, for instance – customers often felt overwhelmed. Sensory overload and reactance were the consequence. More and more companies are trying to counter these challenges to attention-economy by raising the quality of their communication measures. Kufstein University of Applied Sciences addresses these new departures in marketing with the Bachelor’s degree program in “Marketing & Communication Management”: the combination of forward-looking theoretical knowledge with up-to-date practical experience.
Relevance to practice & professional competences
Classes covering the subject-content adopt a practical approach to the subject from the outset. Under the guidance of a coach, students work independently on practice-based projects to fulfill commissions specified by partners from the marketing, media & communication industry. Particularly great value is placed on the training of social skills: here the foremost priorities are presentation, communication, negotiation and selling techniques as well as team and conflict management skills.
Classes taught in English extend the students’ vocabulary and thereby underpin their linguistic competence. A semester abroad at one of more than 210 partner universities fosters intercultural competence.
Recognition of prior learning
Students have the opportunity to have courses credited to them with previously acquired competencies before the start of the respective semester. The crediting is done by an application directly to the director of studies.
