Successful companies ensure that they develop, implement and maintain a sustained and focused public relations strategy with a view to maintaining good relationships with their employees, suppliers and customers. This is achieved inter alia through internal and external promotions, organising and/or sponsoring events and functions, as well as building and maintaining good relationships with the media. In short, public relations allows for organisations and the people with which they interact to enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship.

This short learning programme teaches not only the theoretical aspects of public relations, but also provides the hands-on skills needed to understand the practice of public relations. It not only prepares students for a career in public relations, but also opens doors into the world of journalism, marketing, promotions and event management.
