This programme is delivered by Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona through the Moodle online platform.

Each course is assessed by the same tutor who designed it. Teaching is carried out by top-tier professionals and academics, as a guarantee of excellence and modernity.

The subject areas covered deal with management of intangible assets (identity, culture, brand, image, reputation and CSR), the different areas within communication (commercial, internal, corporate, crisis-related) and specialist areas like communication in institutional relations or in the digital society.      

One of this programme's strengths is its training in strategic planning, acquired by developing the master’s degree final project, which consists of a comprehensive communications plan for a real organisation.
