OPPORTUNITIES FOR GRADUATES

The Indian Media & Entertainment industry includes print, television, film, radio, digital media, music, gaming, events and live media, out of home and other ancillary media.
The industry is valued at over USD 15 billion. Although this is only 0.84% of the global M&E industry, the Indian M&E industry is a sunrise industry with a growth of 11.8%, which is more than double the rate of growth of the global industry. In fact, over the next five years, the industry is projected to grow at 14.2%. This growth has been led by the industry being able to extract more revenue from its already large volume.

In the M&E industry, building volume is hard. India already has the volume. The Indian M&E industry now needs to build value in each unit of the already existing volume by enhancing quality.
Students graduating the programme can look forward to careers in film production, television, film marketing, film distribution, digital and new media, social media, journalism, advertising, PR, event management, talent management and many other sub-sectors of the Media & Entertainment industry.
