Current topics in PR & Marketing

Current topics in AdvPR (96 Kb)

The course familiarizes students with the contemporary perspectives and the progress in the field of advertising and public relation, serving as a valuable complement to the basic advertising and public relation course(s). More specifically, even if the course will endorse a business administration focus, given the interdisciplinary features of the field and the very recent research directions towards a more socio-cultural approach, the course will mainly focus on consumers/audience and socio-cultural and political application/implication. Students are thus offered opportunities to further examine topics such as modern marketing communication and visual design, consumer culture research, public relation and public diplomacy, both through individual and group assignments, and in this manner widen the basic understanding of the advertising and public relation discipline.

 

Current topics in Management- Gender & Management 

Current topics in Management (177 Kb)

The last three decades have seen dramatic rises in the employment rates of women. However, pronounced gender differences remain in the nature of women and men’s contribution to the labour market. Whilst women represent over 40% of the global labour force and are moving into professional and managerial jobs, the number of women holding senior managerial positions is still low.

This course examines these and other gender issues in employment, and the reasons behind women turning to entrepreneurship. It introduces key concepts and theories of gender difference, gendered divisions of paid and unpaid work and gender ideologies. It discusses explanations for gender disadvantage and discrimination at work, evidence for gender differences in management and leadership style and the association of management with masculinity.

The course will provide students with some basic concepts and tools to understand the main aspects of this challenge and become more conscious consumers of financial products.
