  • Overview

    With a focus on models for understanding and interpreting culture, this course examines an array of organizational communication tools, including marketing communication, advertising, public relations, and managerial communication, as they are practiced in Italy and the United States.

The course includes lectures, discussion, guest speakers and field trips.
