Public Relations and Advertising

Public Relations (PR) refers to the relationship between an organization and various groups of people who might have any relationship with that organization, known as stakeholders. PR involves ensuring that an organization maintains a positive brand image with its stakeholders in ways that help promote products, ideas, or positions.

To do this, people working in PR communicate through press releases, speeches, special events, social media, and much more.

One of the main ways an organization communicates with its stakeholders is through advertising. Therefore, students must also learn about the principles and processes related to the production, socio-economic aspects, effects, and future of advertising.
