MBA-level strategic communications course now offered
Bloomsburg University’s Zeigler College of Business has become the 16th accredited business school in the nation to offer the MBA-level strategic communications course as part of its MBA curriculum.
“This program helps students develop skills in strategic communications — the ability to communicate strategic goals, plans, and operations to organizational stakeholders — in ways that improve communication flows and operational efficiencies. Students with these skills will have a distinct advantage when they enter the workplace,” said Jeffrey Krug, dean of the Zeigler College of Business.
The Zeigler College of Business offered the course this past summer with 13 students participating in a strategic communications practicum experience, providing the opportunity to work with a local business to develop a strategic communications plan. The course was taught by Kristie Byrum, assistant professor of mass communications, who is a member of the PRSA College of Fellows and a former public relations agency executive.
