Welcome to the Division Organizational Communication
Profile of the Division of Organizational Communication
The Division’s teaching, research and third mission is interested in the conditions and consequences of organizational communication in a digitalized society. From an interdisciplinary perspective, we challenge common understandings of communication, media and responsibility in different application areas of organizational communication – such as public relations, branding, employee or management communication.
Organization and communication
Firstly, we consider communication more than a strategic means to achieve organizational goals. We acknowledge the constitutive role of communication for the emergence and continuity of organizations as much as the impact of public communication on organizations. Considering these “unplanned” forms of communication in and about organizations allows for better understanding the challenges and contradictions that practice and research are regularly confronted to.
