The course focuses on three main elements of modern management that are vital for the effectiveness of every business/ organization: Communication, Public Relations and Leadership.

Organizational Communication is perceived in many different ways, forms and directions, and is approached in three levels, namely the individual, group and organizational level. This course emphasizes mainly the third (organizational) level.

Public Relations (PR) aims to create a positive image and mutual and trustful relations between an organization and its stakeholders (e.g., customers, shareholders, public and consumer groups). The course presents how PR programs are developed (steps, procedures, elements) based on the targeted stakeholders by using both, traditional means of communication and new media.

Leadership is associated with the so-called ‘soft factors’ of HRM that shape or influence the relations between a leader and his/her followers. The course is focused on the different approaches of study of leadership, and leadership processes and effects.
