Project work

The aim of the course is for the students to synthesize the knowledge acquired during the previous semesters in the Master's Program in Marketing Communication and Fashion and apply them in a practical context to analyze a problem situation for an organization and provide suggestions for potential solutions.

Special emphasis is placed on the application of theories in the subjects Marketing and Advertising & PR. The course emphasizes that students can apply different theoretical perspectives to a given problem. Emphasis is also placed on allowing students to anchor their analyzes in the situation of the organization under study, so that the potential solutions outlined are reasonable from a resource perspective.

The overall aim of the course is that the students should synthesize the knowledge acquired during the previous semesters and apply them in a practical context.
