Technology is revolutionizing economies at every level. At GSMC, media and communication professionals learn to harness its power to collect and analyze information, connect with audiences and tell compelling stories across multiple platforms. Executives, managers and entrepreneurs learn to understand the forces reshaping industry, initiate and defend against disruption, exercise leadership, build teams and talent and turn their ideas into realities.
“Spirited debate, intelligent inquiry, principled disagreement – these qualities must continue to characterize a healthy media sector. At the same time, advancing the cause of media responsibility, grounded in professional competence, is nothing less than a moral imperative. But all of these aspirations must be rooted in better education.”
