The project Corporate Communication: Reputation and Stakeholders is a problem-oriented, exemplary, participant-driven, and group-based activity, where the student develops and documents knowledge, skills, and competencies to work with a defined, self-chosen, professional problem with a focus on corporate communication, defined as the strategic management of organizations’ integrated communication with their stakeholders.
The project aims to provide the student with the theoretical, methodological, and practical and practical knowledge, skills, and competencies within strategic communication and corporate branding, including issue, reputation, and stakeholder relations management. These qualifications enable the student to analyse, prepare, implement, evaluate, and discuss corporate communication activities. The project must include a concrete digital communication product developed by the student, as well as a theoretically based account of the strategic and practical considerations in connection with its planning and preparation. Emphasis is placed on the fact that the linguistic and visual presentation corresponds to the purpose and choice of media, including compliance with normal formal requirements with regard to grammar and spelling.
The project work is supported by guidance and a number of activities that introduce and train the student in developing corporate communication strategies, as well as managing and designing concrete communication initiatives alert to stakeholder and reputation management.
The project report must be based on relevant, academic literature of at least 1000 pages.

There will also be a number of guest lectures and other joint professional activities on these days.
The total study effort for the student (ECTS points converted into hours, 20 ECTS x 27 hours) = 540 hours. The hours are divided as follows:
