During recent years, the market has evolved at a speed rate never before seen. Changes in consumer’s behaviours, digital innovation and the rise of new media have completely transformed the communication landscape. 

That’s why the Brand Communication Master's Program aims to form you as a whole professionist, able to create and manage design and development processes, while also managing the branding communication plans in an ever changing landscape.
As a new professional figure, this Master will require you great flexibility, adaptability, resilience and curiosity.

You will discover how to look at the present, how to anticipate trends and how to approach major companies, who understood the importance of branding communication.

Learn to create and manage branding communications with a multidisciplinary approach

The Brand and Communication Master's Program combines frontal lectures with exercises, case histories, workshops and creative, innovative and professional activities.
The didactical path offers the chance to come in contact with the professional world: in addition to the partnerships with the companies on real briefs, you will get in touch with a faculty made of experts from brands and agencies internationally renowned. 
Students will be guided by a synergic and prepared team through an intensive, interactive and increasingly challenging study plan.

With a multidisciplinary approach, you will dive into the economical and cultural aspects of society, you will focus on strategic and managerial aspects of the brand, and will also further familiarity with all of the marketing and communication instruments.
Sharpen your skills to target the customers and its behaviour, to better define your work and plan.

The Brand Communication Master's Program is a path that articulates through the various parts of the process: starting from the growth and development of the strategy, to the targeted actions of a communication plan and the marketing strategies and trends analysis.

The final project, in collaboration with a real partner, symbolises the end of your didactic journey. The project commissioned by the company will be presented in front of an evaluation committee, to whom you will have to show the skills acquired during the course by using an appealing and original communication. 

The Brand Communication Master's Program invites applications from graduates in humanities, social sciences, business, economics or scientific disciplines, as well as graduates in creative fields from design schools. Work experience, preferably in marketing and communication, is highly recommended.

If you are a curious person, if you want to dive into an extremely concrete and practical world, and if you have the drive to challenge yourself by learning from classroom debate, this course is what you were looking for. 

Get in touch and share this experience with other students with whom you will team up to face a year full of challenging projects.

Throughout your Master's Program, we will analyse economic and cultural scenarios of contemporary life, focusing on key strategic aspects of branding, marketing and communication tools, as well as brand management.

With the skills acquired along the way, you will learn how to properly identify your target market and its patterns of behaviour. This is a crucial step when it comes to defining your product or service in terms of distribution strategy, target markets, marketing and communication strategies and activities.

We will study branding throughout the whole process: from building brand equity -i.e. setting brand values, brand positioning, and planning marketing activities accordingly- to taking specific actions for brand growth and development.
Finally, as the course ends we will approach the topic of self in a specific module marketing: this will provide an overview of the best tools for making a powerful self-presentation - video, paper or web - along with an introduction to public speaking techniques.
