Managing Integration

IMC 457-6 (Elective)

Managing Integration addresses the challenges in managing the organizational issues that arise when implementing IMC initiatives. This course provides a toolkit derived from theories, case studies and class exercises that can be effectively deployed in planning for, and responding to, these issues.

The combination of topics is designed to develop skills in integrative thinking, navigating organizations and managing unexpected events. Class discussion and assignments focus on applying the theories, cases and experiences to real-world IMC examples as well as learning from the integration challenges companies are facing.

Advisory notes for online students: You will benefit from having experience managing in multi-function enterprises and/or prior coursework in organizational behavior. It is suggested that you take either IMC 455 Consumer Insight or IMC 452 Marketing Management in advance of IMC 457 Managing Integration.
