Laura Illia discusses about Corporate Reputation at El País

Written on July 15, 2013 by Begoña González-Cuesta in News

Laura Illia, Academic Director of the Master in Corporate Communication, has recently talked to El País, about companies and corporate reputation. She is currently developing a research project about the topic; her interest is focused on CSR and Social Media.

The results of the research will be helpful for professionals in the field, especially to use them as guidelines to establish a better communication and a dialogue with their stakeholders, changing the culture of the companies.

Laura Illia’s opinions have been published in the blog Via@IEBusiness:


Any communication and reputation manager knows that a good reputation adds value to a company. It buffers the negative impacts of a corporate crisis, is a competitive advantage, an intangible asset that helps to perform better in share value and market shares. Even though a company’s reputation is an important mean of corporate persuasion and provides the credibility that pays off in time of turbulence, a company’s reputation is also a weak asset, full of risks and pitfalls if it is poorly managed.

Craig Carroll, one of our visiting professors at the Master in Corporate Communication at IE, discusses the role of mass media in building and destroying a company’s reputation. In this virtual conference of about 1hour, he provides an overview of recent findings and future research in the area of mass media effects on corporate reputation.

He also explains to us how agenda-setting theory – typically applied to explain media effects in political communication, can be also be functional to explain media effects on organizations and their reputation. Finally, he discusses how business news are covered in developed, emerging, and frontier markets.
