CHALLENGES BEYOND THE MAINSTREAM MINDSET
The new issue of USI Square is now available
In this issue, the Institute of Marketing and Communication Management at USI (IMCA) will be taking the stage with a series of challenging considerations, at the heart of which we find the concept of communication, not only as a mere instrument for information or persuasion, but also
as a true relationship process underlying any organization. The new issue of the magazine will cover, as always, the facts, ideas and stories from the academic world of the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland. USI Square is free and available on the Lugano and Mendrisio Campus and online as well.
