We see humor in advertising all the time, but have you ever wondered how it works or what makes some successful but not others?
On Friday, April 16, 2021, starting at 2 PM, as part of a lecture within the study course Marketing Communication, which covers various aspects of integrated marketing communication, including advertising, the guest will be Hye Jin Yoon, Professor of Advertising and Public Relations, Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication - University of Georgia, USA.
