The MSc programme is a response to the needs of the industry and has been conceived as a combination of academic and professional training. This purpose will be attained through curriculum design, especially the content that was developed in consultation with industry stakeholders, and through pedagogical methods.

In the writing stream, we have kept in mind the desire of industry leaders in print, audiovisual, film, and video, as well as corporate communication, for graduates with high conceptual and technical skills. Our programme is uniquely designed to produce professionals with flexible and adaptive skills, able to perform maximally not only in the media and communication industries but in fact in any business environment. A Masters degree from the School of Media and Communication is a guarantee of quality. Our industry partners who have asked us for this can hardly wait for the products.

In the enterprise stream, the need of industry for talents that build and maintain corporate brands and images, and who are able to manage overall growth, has translated into a programme which is the first of its kind in our continent. With the phenomenal growth in film and video, in new media, in ICT generally, not to speak of private operators in print, radio, and television in Nigeria, the market is wide open for quality graduates in media and communication.
As the world emphasizes more and more SMEs, and entrepreneurship, the media, and creative industries are looking for a new kind of practitioner: the enterprising, dynamic writer or producer or director or manager who creates or develops content for various media, brings new products to the marketplace and can sustain growth in our increasingly competitive environment. This is what our programme is about: forming the new players in an industry undergoing rapid changes. In fact, we expect some of our graduates to opt for self-employment, confident that what they have learnt with us will take them to the topmost heights of their careers.

The pedagogical approach which combines classroom experience with practice-expert sessions, and the presence of media professionals (Senior Fellows and Fellows) who teach in it alongside academics, ensure that students are imparted with knowledge and skills that would make them highly competent professionals able to meet the challenges of operating in an increasingly complex and interdependent global environment.

The internship programme that exposes students to real-life professional experience over a minimum of three months, while researching their dissertations at the same time, ensures that students test their newfound skills, knowledge, and insights in the real world before graduation.
