Mass Comm students will learn how to craft the message in the most creative manner to reach the target market. They would first perform market research to find out about their target market – how they behave, what they like, where they obtain their information, etc. Mass Comm students will then come up with the right message and use the right media channels to send that message.

Most companies require mass communication graduates to look into their communication areas to the public. Companies also need people to create messages to sell their products creatively and position their brand or brands.
Effective branding strategies by top organisations in the world like Adidas, Coca-Cola, KFC, McDonalds or Nike have made them multi-million dollar companies. Top brands in Malaysia like Bonia, Padini, Old Town White Coffee, Secret Recipe, and others use similar communication strategies to position their brands in Malaysia and globally.

With the advent of the Internet, companies have begun to look for specialists who can send their messages to their market using social media, email, websites and other Internet tools.

The demand for writers who can create content for the online is growing steadily for example, bloggers like Kenny Sia. This means that there are good job prospects for those who are able to communicate well using the Internet.

Students interested in studying Mass Comm should be good in languages, like to socialise with people, have an outgoing personality, possess strategic thinking, like to write, organise events, a creative mind, and lots of energy.

A good command of the English language is very important for a successful career in Mass Communication. Students need to choose a university where the students speak mainly in English and experience in offering the programme. If you are weak in English, it will be very difficult for you to maintain the image of your company with bad English.

You will not be able to write good press releases and copy for the brochures. Coming up with good taglines or campaign ideas for your product or company will be almost impossible.

Having a good command of both English and Mandarin would be very advantageous. However, if you are only proficient in Mandarin, you will not be able to get jobs in top multinational or global companies.
