Department of Communication and Culture

We develop and disseminate knowledge based on communication and cultural challenges of the sustainable future where digitalization is central. We do this through engaging with students, dialog, and collaborations with partners.

The course portfolio includes two of BI's undergraduate studies: Creative Industries Management and Digital Communication and Marketing, and one of BI's graduate studies: Master of Science in Digital Communication Management. In addition, the department offers program courses at the Master of Science level and nine programs at the Executive Master of Management.

The department has divided its research into the following centers: #NORA – The Nordic Alliance for Communication and Management , Center for Creative Industries, Nordic Centre for Internet and Society and Center for Innovation in Education.
