MJ 2018, PEI Media reporter

After years of working as a journalist in Asia, I felt I needed to strengthen my skills to move forward in my career path. JMSC courses helped me to finally be able to shoot and edit my own video stories, have a better grasp of all kind of multimedia online tools, and gain an expertise in financial journalism, a skill that has helped me find my current job as a reporter for a financial publication in Hong Kong.

Furthermore, JMSC´s team of professors encouraged me to re-evaluate my understanding of the profession and to constantly aim for the highest standards of journalism.

It was a unique experience in one of the most dynamic cities in Asia.

'I believe that all you need is a lucky break to make it into journalism. However, luck only presents itself when one's preparation meets opportunity. The JMSC programme prepared me through practical classes such as broadcast writing, online journalism and documentary video production. But what makes this programme stand out from other journalism schools are the extensive networking opportunities that helped me land my big break.'

'The JMSC allowed me to develop myself as a true all-round reporter. Video, photography, writing, social media: after completing the MJ I am confident in my abilities in all of them. This versatility is extremely appreciated and sought after in today’s media world. Learning journalism skills in Hong Kong also means real-life exposure to dealing with complex and sometimes politically sensitive subject matter—very useful if you want to work in any international capacity.'
