Vivekananda Institute of Mass Communication (VIMC), a part of prestigious Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies (VIPS) has announced the launch of a PG diploma course in media studies that aims to make students job-ready. The Delhi-based institute has also tied up with various companies in the respective arena, who will impart job-ready training to students of the PG Diploma course. In this quest, VIMC has tied up with Slough PR, a new age public relations (PR) company to skill media professionals desirous of building career in the areas of PR and Corporate Communications.
Under the programme, students will be provided professional training in multiple areas including PR & Corporate Communication, Digital Marketing, Digital Media, Event Management and Film making among others.
The idea behind the launch of the new course is to provide students practical insights through a bouquet of classroom engagements, practical training in industry environment and project assignments.
Dr. SC Vats, Chairman, Vivekananda Institute of Mass Communication said, “There is a dearth of such centers of excellence in North India and we wanted to bridge the gap. A lot of thought has gone into the designing of the newly launched course. Students will benefit immensely from it as they will become job-ready in their respective field as they pursue the course.”
“Most of the postgraduate mass communication courses are extremely expensive and therefore, out of reach for most of the people. Keeping this in mind, VIMC has introduced it at a price of almost 1/6th of what other big institutes provide,” said Prof Sidharth Mishra, Master Mentor, VIMC.
The candidates with a Bachelor’s degree in any stream can apply for the post-graduate diploma programme.
“We are extremely honoured and delighted to be associated with a prestigious institution like VIPS. It is a preferred educational destination for the best young minds of Delhi NCR and it will be our endeavour to further enhance their skill and make them job-ready. We have already chartered a calendar for practical training on various aspects of PR and Corporate Communications,” said Mr. Ashwini Sharma, Founder, Slough PR.
The newly announced course offers great opportunity to talented students to hone their skills under the mentorship of some of the best performers in the field.
