The first ever marketing communications festival of Mumbai

KJ SIMSR, Mumbai
29-30th November, 2019

Integrated Marketing Communications

Why are marketing communications ‘integrated?’ Integrated means combine or amalgamate, or put simply the jigsaw pieces that together make a complete picture. This is so that a single message is conveyed by all marketing communication activities.


A business may have developed terrific products and put together a supremely talented management team, but ultimately success hinges on persuading a significant number of customers to select that company’s products or services rather than buying from someone else. Growing a business comes down to the ability to sell. Innovative strategies, a comprehensive understanding of consumer behavior and aggressive marketing of the company’s message combine to bring about sales success.


And that's where we come into the picture - The Integrated Marketing Communications professionals!!


We are a bunch of 120 enthusiasts studying PGDM in Marketing Communications which focuses on providing knowledge on various avenues such as Advertising, PR, Branding, Digital Marketing etc. Every year, the programme witnesses inflow of students from various states of India. In fact, this relatively new course in the institute has seen growing demand from both aspirants and corporates for placements since its inception in 2012.
