{{'ShareCounter_Share_Label' | i18n}}:
{{'ShareCounter_Share_Label' | i18n}}:

The Campaign is aimed at developing your skills in analysing and creatively solving communication problems by means of a communication campaign. You will learn what an organisational and communication problem is and how you can research such a problem. You will develop a communication campaign for an external client and produce a number of tools (video, printed media and websites) needed to execute this campaign. All this will be done in international project groups, with students coming from all over the world.

​Developing a communication policy and communication plan requires research to find out what audiences and target groups want. You will set up and carry out a research project using quantitative and qualitative research methods (from communication or marketing research). The research group will gather, select and process information about a formulated communication problem from an outside client. You will analyse the communication aspects of the problem and make a description of the target group in relation to the problem. Your findings will be put down in a written report, meant for the client.

Capacity
There are 28 places reserved in this programme for exchange students.

The starting point for companies nowadays in engaging their consumers is understanding their needs and current behaviour in order to involve them, communicate effectively with them and explain the underlying drivers in their behaviour. Marketing communication campaigns are a powerful tool in improving decision-making, changing behaviour and creating engagement among consumers.
 
Authorities, NGOs and businesses that are active in the public domain all try to exercise influence on different kinds of behaviour of people. To change behaviour of people through a campaign is not an easy task. Nevertheless, there are many examples of campaigns that successfully stimulate healthy and responsible behaviour (drinking less alcohol, organ donation). Also with respect to safety in traffic campaigns have contributed to changing behaviour. Communication plays an important role here.
 
As a consultant in communication, you will work on an assignment from a real client who needs help with a communication problem. The assignment is suited for designing a creative (marketing) communication campaign for the client. The campaign is related to sustainability and aimed at behavioural change.
