CCI – Corporate Communication International is a world-class, research-driven educational center in Corporate Communication.

CCI offers information on the best practices and theory of the profession to practicing professionals, scholars, and university students through professional seminars and symposia, traditional publications, electronic and on-line media, briefings and white papers, and traditional university courses.

Corporate Communication encodes and promotes:

  • strong corporate culture
  • coherent corporate identity
  • reasonable corporate philosophy
  • genuine sense of corporate citizenship
  • an appropriate and professional relationship with the press
  • quick, responsible ways of communicating in a crisis
  • understanding of communication tools and technologies

How an organization communicates with its employees, its extended audiences, the press, and its customers brings its values to life.
