Corporate communications is about managing communication processes between corporations and their internal and external environments. It deals with positioning products and services on the market as well as creating social acceptance and building long term relationships to the stakeholders of the corporation.

The instruments used by corporate communications comprise classical marketing and sales promotion, public relations, direct marketing, event communication and sponsoring.

The rapid evolution of the information and communications technology is constantly creating new challenges and opportunities for corporation communications. Most recent examples of this are social networks which have in the meantime altered companies' communication strategies and methods.

One of the main features of the degree programme Information Management and Corporate Communications is its interdisciplinary approach: all three fields – IT, business studies and communication – are subjects of this course. In this way, there are multiple professional perspectives for the students.
