Undergraduate diploma (BTS) in communication


Graduates of this programme know how to design and implement communication actions such as advertising, events organising, and relationship building within the framework of marketing, institutional, social media or public campaigns.

The BTS prepares students to help create types and content of internal and external communication, following the strategy put in place by management. They learn to guarantee quality and consistency.

The BTS teaches non-specialist communication techniques. Graduates are able to adapt to a wide variety of work situations and act within rapidly changing professional and socio-economic settings.
