Course - Overview

Our PG in Advertising & Marketing is a unique course that blends the creative practice with the business of advertising. It will develop digital-savvy advertising professionals with an in-depth knowledge of marketing, copywriting, and brand management.
The faculty consists of industry speakers and adjunct professors, who have their fair share of experience from leading advertising, marketing and design agencies. As part of the curriculum, learners will be involved in international exchange programmes and live projects for an advertising, design, or marketing agency. Some of the companies where our alumni is working include JWT, The Communication Council, Ogilvy, and Times Internet.

The two-year course is well-designed to give a sound knowledge of advertising practices, integrated brand communication strategies, digital marketing avenues, big data analytics, and – ultimately – preparing learners to carry out brand management in both agencies and corporates.
Students with learn design software like CorelDraw and InDesign, along with research software likes SSPS and audience measurement software used by BARC and other such research centers.
Individuals participate in several ad-mad contests, marketing case-study contests, business case-study contests, and creative marketing contests that are organised by IIMs, MICA, corporate houses, and NGOs during this two-year course.
Every month, students get an opportunity to visit leading advertising, brand, PR or digital agencies. Aside from this, they can also visit a corporate house’s marketing department to help them understand how real-life advertising, branding, and marketing work in organisations.
Students are invited for at least 50 or more sessions, conducted across these two years by industry stalwarts to provide a new viewpoint on branding, advertising, and marketing.
They also have the chance to attend video conference sessions by experts from India and abroad. For example, the global mobile content development expert Dr. Stephen Quinn shall conduct a weeklong immersive workshop on mobile content.
