ECC404: Risk & Crisis in Corporate Communication will include an OPTIONAL embedded travel opportunity to Greece during Spring Break 2019.
This 16-week course will provide a foundation for the understanding, preparation and management of local, domestic and international risk and crisis management as it relates to today's global marketplace. Particularly, the CC404 course will offer students the opportunity to engage in embedded study of the crisis management wrought by the banking/financial collapse in Greece whose largest industry is tourism, as well as Olympic crisis management preparation, the Syrian immigration crisis, and external crisis management by a global brand(s). All students will engage in studying the foundations, theories, and classic case examples of risk and crisis management, as well as contemporary cases and current events. Students choosing to travel to Greece will visit local and global brands and government agencies, and students will write a resulting case study on global crisis management with presentation. Non-traveling students will generate case studies on domestic brands/crises with presentations.
CC404 fulfills a Corporate Communication degree requirement. Successful completion of CC200: Introduction to Corporate Communication is a pre-requisite.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of overnight accommodations in a hotel/hostel.
