IIMC Kottayam: Scripting success in media training
IIMC Centre in South India was founded in 1995 at Kottayam –the land of letters, latex and lakes. It was established to train working journalists, public relations professionals and state information officers.
For the first time in 2012, IIMC Kottayam opened its doors to graduate students with the Postgraduate Journalism Programme in English. The IIMC institute has been consistently training budding journalism talents with commitment, quality and industry readiness.
Interestingly, when our students wrote the first public exam conducted by IIMC Delhi, the topper was from IIMC Kottayam. A total of four candidates from the Kottayam branch had found a place in the top 10 ranks. Since then, the success has been reflected in the placement/job offers to students too.
Today the students of IIMC Kottayam are now working in diverse international, national and regional news organisations -- From Reuters to WION, from PTI to The Times of India, The Indian Express, Mathrubhumi andMalayala Manorama.
The success of the Journalism programme at IIMC, can be attributed to strong practical focus and industry interface. Journalism Mentorship Initiative (JMI), which is only available at IIMC Kottayam, makes sure that our students are moulded into industry-ready professionals.
This year IIMC Kottayam launched it prestigious Malayalam Journalism Programme to set new quality standards in the regional milieu. The year 2018 will be a spectacular year for IIMC. The institute will be moving to the sprawling 10 acre scenic campus at Pampady Kottayam.
