India, the largest and the most vibrant democracy has an equally vibrant and colourful media. In the last 20 odd years, we have seen very rapid changes in how we produce and consume media. From being the exclusive domain of a few, we, the consumers have also become the producers of media content. Mobile phones and social media have disrupted the very core how media sector used to function.
But more than that, it is the age of the consumers of media products that has changed. India is a very young country - with about 45% of the population between the age group of 18 to 35 years. You, as media students will be catering to an increasingly younger audience. So rather than harnessing the present, it makes sense to reach ahead and grab the future. The PG and UG programmes at MET Institute of Mass Media are structured to impart to you with the skills as well as the knowledge, enabling you to cater to the needs of this young population. MET lays a solid foundation on which you can build a rewarding and a satisfying media career in the industry.
“The present is already past. What was future is already the present. So let's not get caught unawares; let's prepare for the future together.”
I welcome you to MET Institute of Mass Media and a bright future.
