Jagran Institute of Management and Mass Communication (JIMMC) was established by the Jagran Education Foundation, of the Jagran Group, in 2004. As stalwarts in the field of media, the group realised that in the current scenario of media boom, there is going to be an increasing demand for media professionals with quality and aptitude. To meet this demand for professionally trained media persons, the trust laid the foundation of JIMMC, with its first campus in Noida, followed by another, at Kanpur, the next year. The institute is a platform for students to acquire practical skills along with a strong theoretical base.
The Institute’s aim is to prepare professionals capable of meeting the fast changing needs of the Industry. We offer courses in different branches of media, Print Journalism, Broadcast Journalism, Advertising, PR and Event Management. The institute runs Diploma and PG Diploma programmes as well. The goal of these programmes is to prepare students not only for entry level jobs but also to mould them into thinking strategically about the Media Industry of tomorrow.
For all these courses, the academic calendar is prepared in a way so as to provide a blend of theoretical inputs and an extensive hands-on training in various programmes. Each programme is guided by faculty comprising members either from Industry and/or with academic experience. In addition to this, eminent media professionals of different streams and expertise are invited regularly, to address students on latest Industry trends and its demands. The uniqueness of this Institute lies in its training methods that are highly interactive and revolve around solving real life crises picked from relevant industry cases. Apart from this, students also get an opportunity for internship with the leading names of the media industry as a part of the curriculum.
JIMMC with these programmes has evolved into a unique institute in this part of the globe with its world-class facilities, low student/mentor ratio, state-of-the-art facilities and experienced faculty. In keeping with the tradition of academic rigour, the institute has been regularly organising activities like seminars, conferences and training programmes on contemporary issues and topics. Dignitaries as well as prominent media personalities are invited to share their views and hold public discussions. The members of our faculty have also participated and delivered at national as well as international forums.
To sum up, I would like to say that JIMMC began with a simple objective: To create a talent bank that would cater to the increasing demand for trained communication professionals. Our students of Print, Television, Radio, Internet Journalism, Advertising & Public Relations have found jobs in their respective fields, some of them having joined even the top most companies in their streams. In its over a decade long journey, our students of Print, Television, Radio, Internet Journalism, Advertising & Public Relations have found jobs in their respective fields, some of them having joined even the top most companies in their streams.
Our students are well appreciated in the industry and are the emergent leaders of media. If you are a part of JIMMC, you are part of a rich legacy!
JIMMC strives to create professionals with expertise, who will eventually emerge as leaders!
JIMMC classrooms have TV sets and projector facility for comparative and interactive study sessions. The Classrooms are air-conditioned and well ventilated providing a comfortable environment for study and examinations.
The JIMMC studio has a chroma set-up and is equipped with teleprompter, audio console, Sony PD 177 camera, lights and supporting tools. This is where the TV specialisation students practise and make their bulletins. The students of Advertising and PR specialisation also shoot for their TV commercial projects here. The practical training of students is supported by JIMMC’s expert faculty members. Students not only learn about the shooting process but also get to use all the equipment effectively.
This place is bustling with activity all the year round. Here, students meet eminent guests and listen to them, participate in workshops and attend orientation lectures. Student assemblies for academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities are also held here. Several in-house debates and elocution programmes and other talent-hunt programmes are organised here. This air-conditioned hall has a large seating capacity and is equipped with projector facility.
To make our future journalists IT savvy and up to date with digital technology, the lab is equipped with all the essential software. Here, students practise typing, page-making, print-graphics, besides researching on the internet.
The JIMMC library is truly the best in the entire NCR. It boasts of a remarkable collection of over 8000 books, 19 magazines and periodicals and 17 newspapers. One can easily find the latest books and novels as well as a treasure of forgotten texts. Besides innumerable course books it has a good compilation of books on Hindi and English literature. It also has a rare collection of classics, special effects and animation movies and video-game CDs.
This lab is most essential for students as no video-camera or digital visual is complete without proper video-editing and packaging. The look of any type of film is decided only after editing it. The lab has Apple I-MAC systems and other supporting equipment to meet the training requirements of both Journalism and Animation students at JIMMC.
