The VCU Brandcenter is part creative studio, part business school. As a student, you'll graduate with:
- A master's degree in business
- A portfolio of work
- A healthy appreciation for the power of original thinking
The Business (Concentration in Branding - Communications Strategy) program at Virginia Commonwealth University focus on depth and breadth. No matter your concentration, you'll gain a deep understanding of how to craft your work through hundreds of hours of practice and critique.
You'll learn how consumers think and how the industry works — and how to collaborate with your teammates to get the best ideas.
The learning doesn't stop at creative problem-solving. Under the guidance of faculty with extensive industry experience, you will also learn how to present, persuade and sell your work in accordance with our academic and professional standards and VCU Brandcenter Student Expectations and Code of Conduct.
Along the way, you'll tackle real projects and meet industry leaders. You may find yourself presenting work to executives from companies such as Apple, Droga5, Disney, Wieden + Kennedy, Google or Nike.
The Brandcenter alumni network is second to none. Brandcenter alumni regularly mentor current students by reviewing work, sharing career advice, and hosting tours/informational interviews at their agencies/companies.
