As the second-largest independent Catholic university in New England, and one of the fastest-growing in the U.S., Sacred Heart University is a national leader in shaping higher education for the 21st century. SHU offers more than 80 undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and certificate programs on its Fairfield, Conn., campus. Sacred Heart also has satellites in Connecticut, Luxembourg and Ireland and offers online programs. More than 9,000 students attend the University's eight colleges and schools: Arts & Sciences; Communication, Media & the Arts; Computer Science & Engineering; Health Professions; the Isabelle Farrington College of Education; the Jack Welch College of Business & Technology; the Dr. Susan L. Davis & Richard J. Henley College of Nursing; and St. Vincent's College. Sacred Heart stands out from other Catholic institutions as it was established and led by laity. The contemporary Catholic university is rooted in the rich Catholic intellectual tradition and the liberal arts, and at the same time cultivates students to be forward thinkers who enact change-in their own lives, professions and in their communities. The Princeton Review includes SHU in its Best 385 Colleges-2020 Edition, "Best in the Northeast" and Best 252 Business Schools-2019 Edition.

The course stresses strategic development of these integrated tactics that relate to specific marketing challenges in a single program or campaign delivered in a Creative Brief.

This course will closely simulate an agency workflow process to help prepare students on what to expect in an agency setting. Note: Not every agency works the same way and can be different in their philosophy and culture but the fundamentals covered in the course will help provide a realistic expectation.

This course currently meets two evenings per week in Fall 2020: M&W 6:30-9:15 Onsite on our Fairfield campus plus possible blended course.
