After having completed my Bachelors of Mass Media further studies was a big concern for me and that’s when I came across the PGPME at Welingkar. Attending the PGPME course was an excellent experience for me mainly because of the variety of subjects we were introduced to ranging from Event Management, Movie Marketing, PR, Digital Marketing to Film Distribution and Film Appreciation. The course is a must for any student who aspires to make a career in this industry specially because of the wonderful professors who are themselves working professionals of the industry with rich experience, insights and knowledge and also because of the live projects that the students get to be a part of. It is a complete package and gives a great understanding of the media and entertainment industry.
