“IIJNM has consistently been producing the best crop of new journalists over the past few years. They are more rooted to reality; their ears are closer to the ground, their noses more sensitive to news, their ears better attuned to the language. I have found IIJNM graduates to be the most daring, the most experimental and the most comfortable with tools like RTI. I look forward to the next batch of graduates!”
Mohammed Taha Manna, Former Human Resources, Reuters Bangalore
“Our experience in the last few years, with the students we have hired from IIJNM, has been good. We have found that with the training you impart, they are able to hit the ground running. Students from your college have now moved to different roles within Reuters Bangalore and beyond, which speaks a lot about their abilities. The fact that more of your students are clearing the rigorous screening at Reuters is a testimony to your increasing standards. You seem to be doing a great job at making successful future journalists. Keep it going.”
Nabanita Guha, Sr. Manager- Human Resources, NewsX
“All of them are excellent bunch of students, excellent grooming, great team spirit. Everybody is very matured at this level of their career- learning.”
Margaret Hicks Clarke, The Press Association, UK
“As always a very useful visit, the students are very bright and obviously taught well. They are fully under pressure but obviously thrive on it. I am hoping a number of them will come to work for me in Bangalore.”
Shreeti, HR Manager, TV9
