OBJECTIVES

- To teach students that every brand has a story to tell, whether its a momentary tale or an ongoing brand narrative.

- To show students how to plan, create and develop brand strategies based on transmedia storytelling. These strategies build a bond with the target through significant and powerful narratives, especially drawing on the digital world and new technological opportunities.

- To equip students with the specific tools they will need to analyse brands, their surroundings and the competition.

- To design distinctive and distinguishing communication strategies and produce creative multi‑channel proposals in line with those strategies. 


METHODOLOGY

Guided by their teachers and specialised professionals in each field and based on briefings by real clients, the students will start by analysing the brand and its context before planning a strategy and carrying it through to produce creative actions. To ensure optimal results, the team of teachers and professionals includes experts in strategic planning, media, new technologies and creativity.
