Are you a professional communicator — or a graduate of an approved marketing, advertising or public relations program — interested in developing or upgrading your business, project management and leadership skills in order to advance in your career?
This post-graduate diploma program provides you with the skills and expertise to develop a deeper understanding of how and why business decisions are made, enabling you to offer more valuable counsel to employers and clients, and to become a greater asset to workplace teams and management.
As industries evolve and grow, employers require candidates with not only well-honed communication skills, but also sound business acumen and the ability to advise senior management. Upon completing this program — a quicker alternative to an MBA or multi-year university offering — you’ll be equipped with the skills and hands-on experience to manage major projects and relationships, and to make informed decisions on important communications issues.
Courses combine theoretical and applied learning to build your career potential, your confidence and your portfolio — making you more employable and more promotable.
This program was designed for professional communicators, on the foundations of the Creative Communications Advertising and Marketing Communications and Public Relations and Communication Management specializations.
Applicants must either have completed one of those two programs, or have equivalent educational and/or workplace experience.
NOTE: This program is offered part time in the evening. Courses are offered Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
