History of IIMM
IIMM was established in the Year 1999 by a group of professionals with the mission of creating an institution of excellence that provides cutting-edge industry relevant teaching and training in the area of mass communication.
Says the Founder and Group Chairperson of IIMM, Prakash K. Bhagat, “Since the entire team of founders are practicing professionals from the mass media, we could sense first hand the skill gap between what the industry required and the sort of skills that freshers used to come to industry with. It called for a lot of time and heavy investment to make these resources job ready. This is why we decided to shoulder some of this responsibility and make this investment of time and resources at our end so that our students can hit the ground running and contribute to the mass media in very little time after being selected to join the industry organization.”
IIMM functions through its two branches, namely 3/A N.I.T. Faridabad, Haryana and B 50 South Extension Part 1 New Delhi 49.
We run dual degree/ diploma programmes at the graduate and post graduate levels. The degree is UGC approved and is recognised for all government and private sector jobs across India and the world. The Board of Governors of IIMM issue a diploma to successful students in their chosen area of specialisation. This is a reputed diploma that is welcomed by the media industry since IIMM is a well-known institution that has been engaged in providing high quality media education and training for a decade and a half.
Today, IIMM feels proud that thousands of its alumni work in the best print and electronic media houses, PR firms, advertising agencies and corporate sector organisations across the country.
IIMM's success is carved by practising professionals from the best print and electronic media houses, film making organisations, advertising agencies and PR firms who render industry relevant curriculum and training to the students while the foundation is laid by eminent scholars, professors, teachers and academicians.
The right kind of teaching and training by experts helps IIMM students to be welcomed by industry with open arms.
The primary objectives of IIMM are to set high standards of education to build students' careers and create a difference in their professional lives; impart practical and theoretical training in all aspects of mass communication, grant diplomas, advanced diplomas, and such other certificates, as may be instituted by the Governing Council, to successful students; to coordinate the activities of education and skill development in the fields of mass communication, and to create an ideal environment for developing a powerful network with the various industries that would help students throughout their career.
