MJ 2014, Photo Editor, Asia Photo Desk, Bloomberg
'I joined the JMSC seeking to move into a career working with images. It wasn't the easiest path to take but I was confident that with my experience and with the JMSC laying out the foundations I would be in a good position. Following graduation from the programme, I joined the photo team at The International New York Times as an intern. Newsrooms are looking for specialists, but they also want someone who is well versed in a lot of things.'

Aleksander Solum

MJ 2014, Video Journalist and Producer
'I joined the JMSC with the hope of taking my work experience in video journalism to a new level, and to stay in Asia and work as a video producer. Studying at the JMSC gave me the opportunity to learn from some of the most talented journalists and producers in the business. Not only did the faculty give me every opportunity to develop my storytelling skills, but the tutors also encouraged me to further develop my ideas, giving me a more thorough perspective on my work.'

Joyce Liu

MJ 2015, Junior Editor, Phoenix TV
'Studying at the JMSC was the best time of my life. I got a better understanding of democracy and justice, and became more determined to be a journalist. At the JMSC, I honed my filming and video editing skills, and learned how to discover and produce human-interest stories and documentaries. My internship at an Indonesian TV station made me more tenacious. It was like a crash course that taught me how to explore and produce video news stories when I was still very new to a foreign country.'

MJ 2015, Editor, Bloomberg Businessweek
'I've always wanted to be a print journalist but it wasn't until I joined the MJ programme that I realised how many more opportunities I could have in this field, such as documentary production. I learned all my video production skills from the JMSC, and I've been fascinated by it since the first day I touched a JVC and learned how to use Premiere. I've made up my mind to become a multimedia journalist at the end of this programme, and I've always felt so grateful for having the opportunity to become friends with so many fantastic teachers as well as the alumni.'
