Employability

Corporate communication profiles acquired a growing relevance in the last 15 years. They involve leadership roles regarding corporate brand, culture, reputation, social responsibility, with a multi-stakeholder approach. They also involve growing coordination with other departments such as Finance, HR, Compliance, Marketing, etc.

Graduates can pursue career options related to a specific corporate function in communication departments with a holistic approach to strategic communication planning, or a specialized communication profile in other departments where communication management expertise is needed. Examples are public affairs, investor relations, sustainability, or employee communication profiles.
