We teach you a variety of skills which include problem solving and critical thinking, and as a result, studying an IIE
BA Communication degree with us provides strategic communication and leadership skills that make you stand out.
There are several reasons why a BA Communication degree is a great choice for success in your chosen industry. Whilst the list is quite substantial, we’ve narrowed it down to a few points that could help you make your decision.
Communication skills for the modern age
With the world evolving at a rapid pace, shouldn’t your skills be doing the same? Although communication theory is a great start to mastering the concepts offered by this qualification, we don’t just stop there. We’re also focused on the skills that give you an advantage in today’s working world. For this reason, our take on new world thinking helps you stand out, regardless of the industry you choose. When you’ve got a respected IIE degree behind you and a highly in-demand skill-set, there’s no reason why you can’t excel in your career. With this degree, you’ll be able to write, speak and present effectively. This has an important place in your personal and professional life. Even if you decide to choose a different career path one day, you’ll never not need good communication skills.
Multiple job opportunities
Finding a job you love and progressing in it seems to be getting harder. This is because every graduate is working twice as hard to set themselves apart. As a result, choosing a degree that gives you a number of career avenues is a good idea because then you can keep your options open. This is useful should you want a change of scenery or a new challenge later on. A BA communications degree is a great way to open the doors of opportunity across the realms of advertising, marketing, media, sales, PR, journalism, editing and more.
A chance to reach the top
Studies have shown that those who can communicate are more likely to get considered for promotions. This means that a degree like this one could very well increase your chances of going further in a company. With good leaders needing to communicate, it comes as no surprise that management positions tend to go to those who can do this well. Being able to network also relies on effective communication skills. This means that a conversation with the right person at the right time could result in your dream job.
