Professionals are busy, budget-conscious, career-oriented and eager to maintain an edge as their global industry evolves. The MA International Journalism for Media Professionals teaching team is finding that professionals around the globe will engage enthusiastically with academia if academia provides a flexible curriculum that will enable them to keep working while they study, and to tailor learning activities to support their individual career objectives and inform their practice. Peer-to-peer learning in a vibrant global virtual newsroom and classroom is especially popular with media professionals.
