Thank you for choosing the Aga Khan Graduate School of Media and Communications as your partner for world-class training that is globally competitive and locally relevant.

We aim to create a media elite. It begins with our students — early-to mid-career practicing professionals looking to turbo-charge their career. If you are seeking to gain a competitive edge in a market that is destined to become increasingly cutthroat in the years ahead, and that demands an entirely new constellation of skills, then the AKU Advantage is for you.

We will equip you with the skills you need to stand head and shoulders above the competition. We will coach you in the techniques of managing your career for success. We will introduce you to a global network of relationships and contacts that will open doors at home and across the world.



Training will take place at our state-of-the-art facility located in the 9 West Building in Westlands and within a stone’s throw of our new and ultra-modern media centre to be constructed on Peponi Road, Nairobi, in the next 5 years.

Our programs will be tailored to suit the needs of working professionals and be flexible enough for employers. Courses will run early in the morning, in the evening, on weekends — whatever works best for you.

Most of our students will come from major media houses. But, in our new digital world driven by social media and entrepreneurship, we will also be training the new media leaders and catalysts for growth in the corporate sector.

Innovation is the name of the game in Africa. We will help you be on top of that game.
