The need to anchor Data Communication to the customer experience, the brand and the emotions is what marks the dividing line between a good or bad experience, and therefore the increase in the reputation and positioning of a brand.

The effectiveness of corporate communication can take a qualitative leap using a holistic approach, that of emotions, that manages to integrate, as a set, all the conditioning factors associated with the transformation of companies, consumer habits towards digital elements, the impact of technology in decisions and the immediacy of two-way information.

In this Master's degree, the students learn the fundamentals of how to create procedures and decision structures based on data analysis, active listening, the idea as a differentiating creative element, creating relationships of trust, so that a communication department is able to produce messages that influence on clients, focusing their interests and sensitivities.

The New Frontiers of Communication, a vision patented as TFCOM® (Transcending Communication Frontiers), by MARCO as the only communication consulting agency in the world to have a docuseries on Amazon Prime Video, makes us understand the sector's new paradigm and how it not only affects communication, but also its education. The Internet and COVID-19 have revolutionized the way of informing, transmitting and seducing clients, employees, stakeholders and tourists. What are these frontiers?

  • Language vs geographic borders.
  • Emotion vs reason.
  • Dircom vs marcom.
  • Agencies vs media.
  • COVID-19, the last frontier.

From storytelling to storydoing. You cannot have effective communication if you are not able to influence decisions. This postgraduate degree is committed to new strategies and tools for digital content marketing, showing trends in both storytelling and storydoing. While telling stories serves to excite and appeal to the reader, connecting with him, storydoing creates a real and tangible experience, with a high impact on sales, brand reputation and visibility on social networks.

The Curriculum promotes knowledge of Big Data Analytics and AI to define and personalize communication and reputation management. Today, companies and institutions are creating new opportunities, leading an ecosystem where virtual robots, voice assistants and robotic process automation (RPA) will serve, in collaboration with humans, to streamline communications and business operations, identifying their target and the personalization and optimization of messages.

Likewise, the Curriculum anchors brand communications to data through creative branding, instrumental technologies applied to communication, the importance of Customer Experience or inbound marketing and recruitment marketing.

The micronarrative in Customer Experience. Satisfied customers drive growth. They make transactions more frequently, spend more, cost less, and recommend your organization to others. In contrast, dissatisfied customers spend less, cost more, and actively discourage others from approaching your company. Truly understanding your customer and empowering your teams with specific information in each phase of the customer experience process allows you to take the necessary measures to satisfy customers, retain them and focus on the important things to help organizations to increase the conversion and loyalty of your customers.
