The courses have been readily accepted by corporate world and the students passing out from this hallowed institution are always sought after by other reputed media houses, non-media companies and even government bodies. This and alllied programmes run by the Times Group are also accepted by leading foreign universities like Columbia School of Journalism, London School of Economics, INSEAD, Singapore National University, etc.
