  • This course examines the range of communications tools and options available for marketers to develop an integrated marketing communications perspective. It focuses on planning, integrating, and delivering marketing communications that build equity for brands. By the end of this course, students will be able to describe an overall communication process and explain the objectives of a marketing campaign. More importantly, students as a group perform a “commercial renewal project.” In this project, students select a recent TV commercial for a global brand and then make a new one by sharpening its marketing message, selecting different targets, or suggesting a more persuasive idea.
