Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC) covers the general area of marketing communications with a focus on advertising and promotion at an advanced level. IMC rests upon the management of media and other tools which can be used to deliver marketing messages in an effective and integrated way, while achieving marketing, communications and broader organisational objectives. The subject focuses on an approach to marketing communications that considers how the integration of messages can achieve greatest impact, primarily through the coordinated use of a range of marketing communication tools. In this regard, the subject looks at the creation, selection and execution of consistent marketing messages for an organisation to communicate across its various communication and marketing platforms. An IMC approach considers the strategic use of a range of traditional media, as well as digital and social media. The subject content is placed in the context of more general IMC issues faced by organisations of all sizes including branding, planning, budgeting, coordination and delivery messages, and media management. Students will find that an advanced understanding the complexities of IMC and its various aspects will stand them in good stead for being able to make effective marketing and general business decisions.
