Department of Corporate Communication

Corporate communication is today increasingly considered a key function within organisations as it seeks to ensure integrated communication among the various stakeholders. In order to enable this, corporate communication seeks to manage relationships and communicate effectively with the various stakeholders. Therefore, it seeks to communicate with customers and intermediaries by collaborating with marketing. In communicating with investors, it interacts with financial managers and financial entities. When it comes to government, public authorities and regulators, it collaborates with legal and administrative professionals. To communicate internally with employees it partners with human resources specialists. All these activities require effective use of various communication tools available while also ensuring harmonious relationships with the media.

Effective corporate communication can provide various useful outcomes. These include a strong corporate reputation and corporate culture, a coherent corporate identity and a greater sense of belonging among all employees.

The Department of Corporate Communication focuses primarily on post-graduate education and research. The MA in Integrated Marketing Communication (IMC) has been running since 2002. For the first three cohorts it ran as a two-year, evening programme that was offered in collaboration with lecturers from various overseas universities. In 2008, the Masters degree became a full-time, one-year programme and a founding degree in what today constitutes the International Collaborative Programmes that are hosted at the historic Valletta Campus of the University of Malta. Since 2012-3 it has been offered in collaboration with King’s College, University of London. For further information on the MA in IMC programme and online application click here

The Department of Corporate Communication also provides various study units in areas of its competence as part of the Faculty-wide undergraduate degree in Communications.
