The introduction of new media technologies is fast changing the entire mass communication landscape. Almost all the leading television networks and newspapers have now strong presence on ‘online’. The web presence of this new platform has been described as ‘New Media’. Content writing, search engine optimising are few of the media jobs that can be categorised under media journalism jobs.
With more and more students preferring internet for news and other information, it is also attracting advertising and is increasingly becoming a very effective tool is brand building through PR initiatives and for announcing events.
Keeping this in mind, this institute has introduced a new Post Graduate Diploma in New Media & Web Journalism from this academic session. This course is aimed at training aspiring students in digital media jobs such as: content writing, citizen journalism and online marketing, mobile/wireless, search engines, web designing and development of online audio and video.
The experience that we have gained through seven years of running this institute gives us the confidence to add this new course to our already very successful courses in Journalism (both Print & Broadcast including TV News Anchoring and RJ),Television Production, Advertising, PR/Corp. Comm. and Event Management, among others.
Our placement record has been excellent with students placed in leading television production companies and news networks, advertising agencies across different disciplines such as Client Servicing, Creative, Account and Media Planning in PR/event management firms and also leading newspapers. This year we have achieved another feat in getting our students placed abroad in very reputed companies.
No wonder, the institute has emerged as one of the finest media education institutes in India and also Asia. We get student interest from almost all parts of India and sometimes from abroad as well.
Our focus is on ensuring quality teaching through personal attention and maintaining high industry interaction.
