Mathrubhumi Group to launch media school in Kochi

To encourage the future generation to rise to the top of today’s demanding news and media professions, Mathrubhumi is foraying into a new venture--Mathrubhumi Media School. The school will be set up in Kochi, Kerala.

The media school, with the objective of promoting excellence in the field of media, will infuse broad knowledge, integrity and social commitment, the organisation said in a statement.

It will offer several comprehensive courses for aspiring journalists, with a distinguished faculty dedicated to training them in the state-of-the-art facilities the group has within its media network.

The year-long programme will include hands-on media exposure, projects and assignments specially focused on experiential learning through field experience, collaboration with leading media houses and two-month internship with a stipend for meritorious students.

Talking about the school, M V Shreyams Kumar, Joint Managing Director, Mathrubhumi Group, said, “This is a historic milestone for a 94-year-old media company. We wish to help build great leaders. We wish to build skills and expertise which will be a testament of our organisation’s philosophy and belief.”

George Sebastian, Dean, Mathrubhumi Media School, said “Within the group we have  all constituents of mass media viz; newspapers, magazines, television, FM radio, online media and a fully developed experiential marketing division. With an experience of over 94 years of excellence in creating content and reporting, Mathrubhumi is uniquely equipped to set up a media school.”

“As a media conglomerate, Mathrubhumi has very strong and established relationships with the various constituents of the media world such as prominent national and regional advertisers, research agencies, ministry & government departments, industry bodies such as ASCI, MRUC, INS, IBF and AROI, and with other media companies. This will enable us to provide a platform to students to interact with various industry experts,” he said.

“We are confident of imparting a wholesome learning experience to students, which involve not just the theory of journalism, but they also get to practice what they learn,” Sebastian said.
