MJ 2019, Supriya Batra, Digital News Editor, Bloomberg
The masters programme in journalism (MJ) at JMSC taught me the multimedia storytelling skills that are of utmost importance in today’s digital world. The faculty members here are some of the most kind and generous people I have met in my entire life. They not just teach meticulously in classes but also encourage one to strive for better. Though the course is intense but the experience and exposure gained through internships is unmatched. I got to work with some of the best journalists in many international newsrooms such as TIME magazine, Agence France Presse (AFP) and SCMP during the course. With some previous journalism experience, covering a wide range of international news both for college assignments and during internships, JMSC helped me to level up my career as a finance journalist and land a dream job at Bloomberg right after I graduated in 2019. Overall, it is a course that has strengthened my belief to keep seeking truth and pursue ethical journalism.
