HND Digital Technologies:
Digital Communications
Management

From the products you buy to the services you use, every media message you receive and the choice you make has been influenced by marketing forces. Studying HND Digital Communications Management will enable you to understand how Digital Technologies impact organisations and society, and how organisations navigate and transform the functions and roles of communication to adapt to the increasingly complex digital corporate landscape.

HND in Digital Communications Management will provide you with functional knowledge and specialised skills in core areas of digital communications including content strategy and curation, user experience and user design. By focusing on digital communication channels and analytical tools, you will gain technological competence that will enable you to become a communicator who understands the digital world and knows that different dilemmas need different types of communication and approaches. 

Our HND is more flexible and cost-effective than a bachelor’s degree; our tuition fees tend to be lower and unlike a bachelor’s degree, you can complete your HND in two years but still retain the option to top-up to a degree.
