2 European universities, 2 Master’s Degrees, 1.5 years of an unforgettable and a once in a life time experience.

In the contemporary global village that our planet had become in the course of past decade, it is hard to resist the opportunity to discover new corners of the world we live in. If globalisation is handing you the keys to new experiences – then why not go for it!

In association with the Geert Hofstede Consortium; Hanze University of Applied Sciences (The Netherlands), Leeds Beckett University (United Kingdom), Vilnius University (Lithuania) and IULM University (Italy) have joined forces to offer a multicultural and challenging master’s programme in International Communication with the aim to prepare a new generation of leaders, innovators and influencers.

You will have the opportunity to study in two universities, experience more than 2 countries other than your own, work in multicultural projects and earn two Master degrees. “It’s a small world ” and it has never been truer than now, so go on and give it a go!

The MIC has allowed me to live in two foreign countries and I have never experienced anything quite like this. It definitely is an unique experience.

Digital Communication Systems Engineering Using Software Defined Radio

Modern society is increasingly becoming dependent on digital communication systems in order to function properly, with a growing number of applications relying on these devices, e.g. personal health/body networks, defense/homeland security, navigation/localization, social networking, vehicular transportation. Consequently, digital communication systems education employing instructional laboratory guides via a hands-on learning approach would significantly help individuals studying in this concentration to synthesize many of these concepts by realizing them in actual prototype systems and conduct real-time “over-the-air” communication experiments. Given the complexity of these modern digital communication systems, especially those based on software-defined radio (SDR) technology, which requires an integrated understanding of the fundamentals from the communications and networking concentration as well as from other concentrations, it is expected that this hands-on educational paradigm will provide individuals with a systems-level understanding (breadth) of a modern digital communications device while focusing on several key aspects (depth) in the design and implementation of these systems.

With the generous technical and financial support of The Mathworks . this digital communication systems engineering approach will provide individuals with hands-on exposure to the design and implementation of modern digital communication systems using software-defined radio technology. The prototyping and experimentation of these systems via software-defined radio will enable greater flexibility in the assessment of design trade-offs as well as the illustration of “real world” operational behavior. Performance comparisons with quantitative analytical techniques will be conducted in order to reinforce digital communication system design concepts. Experimentation topics include software-defined radio architectures and implementations, digital signaling and data transmission analysis in noise, digital receiver structures (matched filtering, correlation), multicarrier communication techniques, radio frequency spectrum sensing and identification (energy detection, matched filtering), and fundamentals of radio resource management.

Electronic Resources for Digital Communication Systems Engineering with Software-Defined Radio

The book by Di Pu and Alexander M. Wyglinski, entitled: Digital Communication Systems Engineering with Software-Defined Radio (Artech House, February 2013, ISBN: 978-1-60807-525-6), presents a comprehensive educational framework for learning digital communication systems engineering using software-defined radio technology, ranging from the detailed coverage of several fundamental theoretical concepts to the step-by-step process of conducting actual over-the-air experimentation of digital communication systems using SDR. To assist the interested individual, there exists several electronic resources designed to support this book:

  • A collection of 26 sets of lecture slides (ZIP ) designed to complement the material convered in the book.
  • Source code for the experiments presented in Chapter 5 (ZIP ), Chapter 6 (ZIP ), Chapter 7 (ZIP ), and Chapter 8 (ZIP )

Freely Available SDR Laboratory Materials

3 Skills All Communications Majors Must Have #graduate #school #for #communication #majors


#

3 Skills All Communications Majors Must Have

As a budding communications major, you may be wondering what to do after college. The good news is that your degree has prepared you for success in many careers.

Communications majors are often highly attuned to current events and the world of media, they have strong public speaking and presentation skills and they know how to write well and craft convincing arguments. These “soft skills” will make you valuable to many employers, as will the “hard skills” you may have picked up over your four years in college, like web design, Photoshop or statistical research.

Here s a primer for how to describe your skills and turn them into quantifiable experiences for your r sum . We also have some advice on how to bolster your degree before graduation with some practical experience beyond the classroom:

You are a media and marketing expert.

You’ve learned to think critically about different forms of media and are keenly aware of underlying messages. You also know how to reach different audiences with your information or product. Given the importance of media and marketing in many industries, your expertise in these areas will definitely help you land a job.

How to develop this skill outside the classroom:

  • Seek an internship at a local network television station, or check out the opportunities at your college radio station or newspaper.
  • Query campus offices such as Resident Life, the Student Learning Center or the Career Center, which often hire students to help lead marketing initiatives on campus.
  • Land a position as a campus representative for a media company like Apple or Vault. You’ll get an inside look at the methods companies use to reach young people.

You are a practiced and persuasive public speaker.

Communications majors understand that research and enthusiasm can mean the difference between facing an engaged audience and staring at a room full of thumb twiddlers. Whether you have to pitch a concept to your boss, lead a conference call or simply interact with a customer, strong public speaking and presentation skills will be integral to your success after college.

How to develop this skill outside of the classroom:

  • Join your college’s speech and debate team to gain experience crafting and delivering a compelling argument.
  • Lend your voice to a student organization. Campus clubs are always looking for members to reach out to other students and organize social or community service events.
  • Become a peer tutor. Tutoring or instruction of any kind, not surprisingly, is one of the best ways to develop your communications skills.

You have strong quantitative and qualitative research skills.

Without research data, a marketing team can’t identify its target audience, lawmakers can’t create effective public policy and reporters would have to rely on hearsay. Your understanding of research methods will be a valuable asset for employers, whether you choose to pursue a career in academia, media, politics or marketing and public relations.

How to develop this skill outside of the classroom:

  • Snag an undergraduate assistantship with a faculty member whose interests align with your own. Many schools offer credit for academic research.
  • Seek a summer job with a consulting firm. These firms are interested in any brainy student who understands how to crunch numbers and translate their findings into layperson’s terms.
  • Investigate think tanks and research institutions that might offer internships for undergraduates who want to help collect data on important public policy issues, from drug abuse rates in the United States to the effectiveness of humanitarian aid programs abroad.

That communications degree was a smart choice whatever field you chose to pursue, you’ve developed skills that will help you excel. Understand how to sell those skills to a potential employer, and you’ll be able to successfully transition from undergrad to working professional.

If you re a high school student with communications aspirations, find a college with a strong program and plenty of opportunities to skillbuild in and beyond the classroom.

Career in Mass Communication

Introduction

The world has witnessed a phenomenal and unprecedented explosion in communication technology and media. All boundaries have been transcended, and the entire global community seems to have been brought together into one unified whole. And it is here that mass-communication, as a stream of study, and as a career, becomes so important and enviable.

Mass Communication is not limited to journalism alone. To a great extent mass media is a modern reality which covers all aspects of human life. Moreover, a great change can be observed in the concept of people working in mass media. Careers in Mass Communication are not only high paying but also bring in a great deal of job satisfaction and expression of creativity.

Step-by-Step

Not long ago, people with good communication skills and a degree in literature were considered fit for journalism and other areas of mass communication. However, with technology playing greater role in our lives, all professions related to mass communication now require skilled professionals who work fast and efficiently send across the message to a whole range of audience. Even though with the proliferation of blogs, it is commonly claimed that anyone can become a journalist, a closer inspection of reality proves that only those with professional training make the grade.

Start Early

Unlike engineering or medical streams there are no preparation strategies or set formulae for making a career in mass communication. A graduate degree in the field is good to start with but a post graduate degree or diploma is almost essential to be considered for responsible positions in any organisation. Meanwhile, you need to start blogging or work as a freelance contributor to newspapers and a host of online publishing sites to develop your communication skills. Maturity, objectivity and a sensible train of thought are essential.

Is it the Right Career for Me?

Answering this question requires a critical self-evaluation. You need to have creativity a way with words and excellent communication skills as you will be required to explain and inform, about the most complex of issues, in the simplest of terms to a large number of people. Moreover, you require great deal of patience, because in this field, it takes a lot of hard work, and quite some time, to make it to the top.

What would it Cost Me?

Courses in mass communication are expensive as tuition fees and charges and expenses for doing projects, internships, and field work are quite high. Most of the institutes offering under graduate courses charge anywhere from Rs 60,000 to Rs 2, 00,000 per year. It means you will have to pay nearly three lakhs for a course of three years duration. Similarly, a PG diploma course from Indian Institute of Mass Communication can cost in the range of Rs 40,000 to Rs 1,00,000 for one year. PG course in Mass Communication from MCRC at Jamia Millia Islamia can cost around one lakh for two years.

Funding/Scholarship

IIMC offers scholarship for candidates in each branch i.e. print media English and Hindi and Electronic Media which is almost half of the fees for first two toppers. Several other memorial scholarships at the institute are based on merit. Other mass communication institutes too provide merit based freeships and scholarships. Education loans are available from nationalised banks such as Allahabad Bank and Punjab National Bank wherein a student can seek a loan up to Rs 7.5 lakhs at low interest rates.

Job Prospects

A professional course in mass communication opens doors for a career in films TV, publishing, public relations, journalism, editing, direction, filmmaking, scriptwriting, production, etc. In nutshell, Mass Communication widens up the horizon of career options for a person. Depending upon personal interest and inclination a mass communication professional can choose a job. Attractive and high paying jobs as journalist, actor, director, editor, screenwriter, RJ, producer, VJ are available to the talented and trained individuals.

Pay Packet

Whereas candidates passing out from IIMC, MCRC Jamia, Symbiosis College and many other institutes receive attractive placement after their courses and handsome salaries, students from not-so-well- known institutes have to work hard to get placed. Starting salary for a mass communication professional could be between Rs 12,000 and 25,000. After 5 Years of work experience a professional can expect higher salary in the range of Rs 50,000 to Rs 1,00,000 per month.

Demand and Supply

Demand and supply plays a crucial role in careers of mass communication professionals. The global recession had cost many high profile journalists their jobs and the graduates of these turbulent times found it extremely hard to get placed. On the contrary, there is a dearth of trained professionals in mass media, new entertainment and news channels and with new launches in the pipeline the demand will only shoot up. Opening up of media sector for foreign investment is expected to create new jobs in the field.

Market Watch

Career opportunities in mass communication are expected to increase as not less than 70 news channels will come up in next five years. Thanks to mass media, news and entertainment job opportunities are aplenty for trained professionals in various roles – particularly in journalism and films. India being the largest producer of films in the world has ample opportunities. Technically qualified media professionals can work for TV channels, production houses or can make documentaries on their own.

International Focus

News Corporation of Rupert Murdoch, Disney Entertainment, Warner Brothers, CNBC, Guardian Group, BBC, ABC and many others are included among the large media groups which offer attractive jobs in mass communication at different levels and positions. In fact jobs in these organisations are attractive in terms of compensation and offer challenging job profiles. Indian professionals have an edge to work in international media houses for they have excellent command over English language.

Positives/Negatives

Like any career option, mass communication too has positive features as well as a flip side.
A career in mass communication requires commitment, dedication and sacrifice of personal time for the sake of staying on front or top, particularly in news industry. A journalist may have to work day in and day out to get breaking news. Similarly, media professionals who are in entertainment or film making need to work with passion which may come at the cost of their personal life.
However, in a nutshell, mass communication as a career provides job satisfaction, name and fame and a challenge to live with.

Different Roles,Different Names

Following are the various job profiles offered to graduates in mass communication:

  • Fashion Photographer
  • Film Director
  • TV Correspondent
  • Producer
  • Radio Jockey/ RJ
  • Screenwriter
  • Sound Engineer
  • Sound Mixer and Sound Recordist
  • Special Correspondent
  • Video Jockey
  • Art Director
  • Editor
  • Event manager
  • Public Relations Officer

Tips for Getting Hired

Besides pursuing a course from a mass communication institute, a candidate is required to possess certain skills or interests which help him get a job. Candidates who are interested to get into news media should have keen interest and sound knowledge of news and current affairs. Global perspective on various issues helps candidates in obtaining the position of reporter or journalist.

Similarly, those who are interested in electronic media are required to have practical knowledge on video editing. Most of the mass media training institutes offer internship programs with news channels or entertainment channels which help candidates get a job after completion of the course.

    Health Marketing Basics

    Introduction

    Health marketing and communication is an emerging field that draws from traditional marketing theories and principles. Health marketing is defined as creating, communication and delivering health information and interventions using customer-centered and science based strategies to protect and promote the health of diverse populations.

    Marketing

    Marketing is the process by which products are used to meet human or social needs. By acting as the link between vendors and consumers, marketing is an essential part of the exchange of goods and services. The fundamental aspects of marketing are the same whether they meet the need for a commercial product or a public health service. Therefore, health marketing is a form of traditional marketing.

    For both traditional marketing and health marketing, the end user of a product or service is called a consumer and a group of consumers is referred to as a market . Characteristics of the market are considered at every stage in the marketing process, including the initial development of a product.

    Marketing Mix

    Marketing mix is a term used to describe the integration of four fundamental marketing elements, which are sometimes called the four Ps :

    • Product: the item, good or service that is being provided that delivers benefits to those who consume it; includes quality, packaging, design and brand name
    • Price: monetary and non-monetary costs to the market
    • Place: channels and locations where the product can be obtained
    • Promotion: direct communication, publicity and advertising

    Each of these four components should be present in a marketing plan. However, it is the science of correctly using these elements in combination with one another that provides the effective marketing mix . Essentially, to be effective a product must be tailored to customer needs, priced realistically, distributed through convenient channels, and actively promoted to customers. *

    A Traditional Marketing Example

    A soft drink company creates a new product under its brand name. To efficiently market the new drink, the product is advertised in the local papers with coupons that offer a price reduction. The company distributes the new drink with their existing products so that it is available at every major grocery store in the country. Here is how this company used the marketing mix:

    • Product: new soft drink; released as part of existing brand
    • Price: reduced price for introductory period
    • Place: widely distributed to convenient locations
    • Promotion: advertisements in local papers

    A Health Marketing Example

    The CDC develops a new rapid HIV testing kit that provides results in half the time of current tests. To efficiently market the new product, the testing kits are announced by the national media and medical journals. The CDC sends free samples of the new testing kits to each of the state health departments, who deliver them to local health departments, clinics and hospitals. Here is how the CDC used the marketing mix:

    • Product: new HIV testing kit; released by a credible research agency
    • Price: free for trial use
    • Place: widely and evenly distributed throughout states using state and local health departments
    • Promotion: national media publicizes to public; journals inform medical community

    As demonstrated in these examples, each of the marketing mix elements must be present in the marketing process. Tailoring the elements to match the target market and using each component in coordination with one another leads to a successful marketing mix.

    Marketing and Exchange

    One of the fundamental aspects of marketing is exchange. Individuals pay a price (money) for goods or services in the traditional definition of an exchange. In health marketing, the exchange often involves a non-monetary price, such as effort or time.

    As this example shows, different markets can value the same exchanges differently. Because senior citizens and teenagers have varying priorities and often use the same channels for different activities, they have opposite views of what constitutes an equal exchange. Understanding the specific market for each product or service is essential to effective marketing.

    Choosing a Target Market

    A critical decision in marketing is choosing the target market for the product. A target market is a specific group of people who have similar needs, preferences and behaviors. Once a target market is selected by the marketer, a marketing plan is developed to match the characteristics of the target market. There can be one or more target with corresponding marketing plans for each. Choosing a target market is a first step in making appropriate distribution and promotion decisions. It is only through an understanding of the target market that one can develop an effective marketing plan and create value for customers.

    There are several important steps in choosing a target market:

    • Clearly define who the individuals are that make up the market you are analyzing. These are people who share a common need for your product, including people who may not yet be aware of that need.
    • For example, if you want to design a campaign to encourage people to get tested for diabetes, the market for the testing procedure includes mainly people who are not yet aware that they may have the disease.
    • Determine the characteristics that you will use to categorize the people within the defined market. Some common ways to categorize, or segment, people are. age, gender, ethnicity, geographical location, education level, income level, risk factors, etc.
    • Following with the diabetes example above, imagine that you want to market the diabetes testing to young adults. You may know from your research about diabetes that the disease occurs more commonly among low-income populations and individuals with lower levels of formal education. In addition, if your intervention program is only offered in one city, such as Chicago, your market is reduced further. In this example, you could segment the larger market and select a target market of 17 – 24 year old individuals who live in low-income areas of Chicago and did not finish high school.

    For this example, only one target market was selected. However, many marketing efforts choose more than one target market. The decision of how many target markets to select often depends on the amount of resources you have for the project. More target markets require more resources.

    • Now that you have chosen a clear target market, it is time to better understand the individuals in this group. Through research you can determine the characteristics and behaviors of the group. There are many marketing resources that provide research information on different markets. If you select a market that does not have a large amount of existing research, you can conduct new studies through surveys, focus groups and other methods of collecting data directly from the market.
    • Some things to consider when analyzing a market include: what media they use; what they do with the leisure time (television shoes, music, websites); how they communicate with one another; what languages they speak, including slang words; what their opinions and knowledge are about the target health issue (such as diabetes in the above example); what their values are; etc.

    In order to avoid stereotypes, you must use research and evidenced-based information to build your analysis. Many times the research of these markets reveals that their beliefs and behavior are much different than could be predicted.

    A complete analysis of the target markets will result in choosing an effective target market and then, an informed development of marketing plan(s).
