FMCC holds its third annual convocation; Rajat Sharma calls for passionate & citizen-centric responsible journalism

Futuristix Media Communication Centre (FMCC) held its third annual convocation in New Delhi on Saturday. Rajat Sharma, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, India TV, was the Chief Guest, while Atul Maheshwari, MD, Amar Ujala, also graced the occasion.

Addressing the young audience, Rajat Sharma called for passionate & citizen-centric responsible journalism. Sharma said, “Media and communication is the fastest growing industry. There is a need for well-trained and groomed people at all levels, especially at the entry level. The importance of media lies in its credibility and distinctiveness.” He also opened the forum to a question-answer session.

According to Sajal Mukherjee, Director, FMCC, “FMCC takes into account the interplay between different disciplines, and courses designed here enable the students to be sensitive to social realities and leverage the sensitivity in their future careers. At FMCC, we believe that newer technologies and strategies are very crucial for performance and growth, and our training strives to give each student the cutting edge that is required for him or her to perform to the optimum level.”

Niti Batra, Co-Chairperson and MD, FMCC, commended the alumni for their invaluable contribution and support, and also appreciated the students for showing enthusiasm and their active participation in the institute.
