Department of Communication and Culture

Through research, teaching and outreach, our department strives to create meaningful communication for sustainable organizations and society in a digitalized world. We do this by engaging with students, active dialog and collaborations with industry partners, NGOs, leading research institutions and funding agencies.

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.
