Media Management Training

As part of the Digital Media Viability Lab, we will be running several rounds of media management training.

The in-depth course involve four modules. Each module comprises of four days’ face to face training (conducted in the Middle East or North Africa) followed by four weeks of e-learning.

The four modules are:

- How to develop your media business strategy

- How to create, promote and sell content

- How to earn money in non-standard ways and how to economize it

- How to create an effective team in contemporary media

Graduates of the training receive a certificate to show they have gained extensive understanding of media management in the context of journalism. They learn knowledge and skills that will help them run a media business successfully.

Every year so far the selection process for participants has been highly competitive.
