LAURIER CHAIR IN BRAND COMMUNICATIONS
The American Marketing Association definition of marketing refers to an activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings of value. Brand communications focuses on the “communicating” part of the definition; but, takes an important step by noting that marketing communications must be strategic not just tactical or creative. The key driver of that strategy is the brand. The goal of the Brand Com program is to produce graduates who can articulate an understanding of the brand and know how to engage consumers in brand-directed conversations. With the generous support of the Marketing Communication Educational Trust (www.mcet.ca) the Laurier Chair will seek to develop innovative curricula and educational experiences to further brand marketing education.
