What IIJNM Alumni is saying?

IIJNM course is tough -- no two ways about it --, but it prepares you to take on any media job, and helps you fit right in with any organization from the start.” - Dilraz Kunnummal, batch of 2016, Reporter, Daily Tribune, Kingdom of Bahrain.

“I was placed through campus recruitment and I still can't thank IIJNM enough for what it has taught me and made me learn. It was a great, memorable and truly valuable year of my life” - Swati Varma, Associate Producer, TIMES NOW.

“What is taught in most classrooms in the country is far different from what is to be done at the office. That gap was filled at IIJNM.” – Itika, Reporter, Newswire 18.

“Don't be worried about placements unnecessarily, because with the faculty you have, all of you will get placed a 100 percent (except those with attitude problems)”. Simran, Tehelka, New Delhi
