Whether you are starting your career in journalism or are an experienced reporter looking to get to grips with a changing industry, this is your opportunity to sharpen the skills now demanded by employers.

This was the first journalism course in England to be taught from within a business school, providing students with access to our extensive contacts in industry. You will be able to take advantage of these links as you report on new developments, expanding companies and high-profile business leaders in a thriving city. You will also benefit from our contacts with an array of media organisations offering invaluable work placements and employment opportunities.
