What is Integrated Marketing Communications?

IMC attempts to unify all pieces of marketing communications, including advertising, public relations, direct marketing, social media and sales promotion. Integrated Marketing Communications adopts a human-centered approach where messaging caters to an audience and is consistent across all channels. When you study IMC, you learn how to align marketing activities to ensure a constant flow of information to consumers from a variety of media. As technology continues to advance and as digital media becomes increasingly important, companies must be able to leverage those mediums to create effective and consistent marketing and messaging that connects the consumer to their brand. As a graduate of an IMC program, you not only would excel at marketing communications, but would also be able to analyze data and manage strategic project planning.

Isaac Mei

Early in his career, Isaac Mei knew he wanted to stay up-to-date with emerging media and trends so that he could be on the cutting edge in his career. Graduating from the M.S. IMC program in 2017 set him up for success.

“For me in my career, I've been able to really build my name on that and stake a claim with being the guy in whatever workplace I've been in who's always prepared for the next thing. IMC really taught me how do we translate our message to our audience using the next platform, the next thing, and does that make sense for us and our brand.”

— Isaac Mei, Class of 2017
