It gives me, faculty and staff of International School of Broadcasting and Journalism, an immense pleasure to welcome all the students of Under-graduate, Post-graduate courses and Research streams to the academic year 2018-19.
As we step into this new academic year, we are filled with aspirations and dreams of scaling new heights through our students, With another year of exciting growth in media industry, we are geared up to deliver specialisations for launching Research division in Media Studies, This is also a year when our Under Graduate and Post-Graduate students will pursue their specialisations in their course of study, which will help students realise their career goals in Media Industry.
Media is evolving as ever, the dynamics of news, online media, corporate communications and reporting business are evolving as special areas of work. We have realized the growth in Business News and Information production and consumption, hence we have launched MA-Corporate Communications and MA-Business Journalism, both two-year programs for the first time in the country.
We now have created the departments of Journalism, New Media, Strategic Communications and Video Production with adding new faculty members.
Our students have interviewed celebrities, drafted and covered events through write-ups and video, active media coverage of live events and sports. We are now extending these experiences to/as Student Engagement Program. The Student engagement programs will include classroom and practical sessions of News Room, Camera, Video Editing, Sound Recording.
This year for the PG students we launch unique Mentorship Program to help students get the industry perspective from the experts in the field.
We are looking forward to a great participation of every student on this journey.
