Introduction

In the event that the health authorities announce a new period of confinement due to the evolution of the health crisis caused by COVID-19, the teaching staff will promptly communicate how this may effect the teaching methodologies and activities as well as the assessment.


The development of Final Grade is presented as an integrated communication plan, this means that the project will contain actions both public relations and advertising, including in some cases internal communication. It is proposed as a project that includes actions known within a strategy 360

 The idea of the TFG is that the student is able, first, to identify or get a client (can be real or own project), product or service for which develop the communication plan and then, in the long term, to develop a integrated communication campaign for it.

Due to the nature and extent of the project it is necessary to raise it into two blocks, the first to be developed during the first half corresponds to the part of the background to the campaign, as the successful development of a comprehensive communication plan requires a preliminary analysis and knowledge of the environment that allows the identification of aspects to consider during plan development (social, economic, legal and technological aspects). It is also necessary, a thorough knowledge of competitors, not only of its products and services, if not its various communication actions that will allow the realization of a correct benchmarking and thus the generation of a complete SWOT analysis.

Without this prior knowledge it is impossible to approach communication objectives, identifying target audiences (PO) and finally a correct strategy. All the latest, essential in the further development of communication actions in line with the company, and that would be part of the second block of the TFG, to develop in the second half and therefore much more extensive, focuses on the development of all actions necessary to carry out the communication plan and the fulfillment of the objectives and strategy set.

Pre-course requirements

The TFG will be conducted in groups (which go from one member to 4).

Each group will present its proposal coordinator TFG and approve it or not this proposal based on the following criteria:

- The characteristics of the proposed project

- The possibility of a real application: direct contact with a client in the case of an existing brand is suggested, if not it will seek to have access to the necessary information in the preliminary stage of investigation will also be viable another type of own projects with development potential, as long as the size and capacity of implementing a global communication campaign is not restricted to a very small number of shares or a shoestring.

- The invested in developing the plan, budget suggests that this is from € 250,000

- The project must have the possibility of including in its development actions both Internal Communication, Advertising and Public Relations

- The adequacy and relationship of the project to the areas of student interest

 The proposed client should be closed and approved by the coordinator during the first week of the first semester, coordinator therefore establish schedules tutoring in order to give poyo the students in customer choice, topic, product or service for which the campaign will run.

From approval (document via the coordinator send mail to the group), the group will start working on the campaign.

In the event that the group does not get a clear idea of project, customer, service or product, or simply prefer to do so you will receive a briefing by the coordinator.
