Media and Entertainment industry has been considered as one of the growth drivers of India. The Industry has outperformed many and yet stands tall at Rs 1674 billion (EY-FICCI, 2019) market. India is a market where the traditional and transformational media platforms are scheduled to coexist in a big way.

While digital has been growing at a stupendous pace, platforms like television, films, print, and radio have been registering sustainable growth.

Considering the growth and scope of the industry, there is an utmost need for trained professionals to become the growth drivers to achieve newer heights.

Post Graduate Certificate Programme in Media & Entertainment Management (PGCPMEM) is designed to create the future leaders of the industry.

Prof Santosh Kumar Patra, Area Leader, Media and Entertainment Management (MEM) and Head, Centre for Media and Entertainment Studies (CMES) will personally be leading the programme at MICA. He has also taken the role of Programme Director.

The business environment has changed quite radically in India in recent years. To be effective and successful, executives need to refresh and enhance their management skills continuously.

Such understanding is particularly essential in the complex, globalized environment in which economies operate today. Post Graduate Certificate Programme in Business Management (PGCPBM) is designed at providing this understanding to the participants.

According to a recent report by The Economic Times, the majority of the business management postgraduate, barring tier-1 institutes like MICA and select IIMs, are not employable.
