‘Writing for the Wires’ introduced as an elective
IIJNM has partnered with Cogencis to offer ‘Writing for the Wires’ as an elective to students for the second semester in its continuing effort to increase industry-institute interaction.
The skill of being able to condense a news event into a few quick flashes, along with quick follow up stories will be the crux of the elective that has been developed by the team from Cogencis.
The aim is to offer students an insight into the complex world of real-time wire journalism through the prism of finance. The curriculum and real-time nature of the training are structured to enable students to work not just in financial wire agencies but also in digital mediums, online portals, television channels and more.
