Students of Department of Public Relations and Advertising, Faculty of Communication, Izmir University of Economics (IUE) exhibited their ad campaigns they had been working on throughout the year at Izmir Chamber of Commerce Exhibition Hall.
Students, who prepared their campaigns within IUE Genç Yaratıcı Communication Agency, presented their works to the audience including IUE Vice Rectors Prof. Dr. Murat Aşkar and Prof. Dr. Filiz Başkan, Prof. Dr. Ebru Uzunoğlu, Dean of IUE Faculty of Communication, academics, and members of Izmir Association of Advertising Agencies.
Assoc. Prof. Sema Misci Kip, Head of IUE Department of Public Relations and Advertising, reported that Haluk Mesci designed the students’ communication agency simulation for the first time. Assoc. Prof. Kip stated that Mesci along with Meriç Eryürek, Gözde Çeviker, and Barış Atilla ran the agency, and students worked at an agency atmosphere. Assoc. Prof. Kip said, “We had been running the communication agency simulation for last year students for four years. Genç Yaratıcı Communication Agency is a unique feature the other universities do not have. Students gain experience throughout the year as if they are working at an advertisement agency, and they graduate with that experience. It is more than an internship for them”.
