These are only a few of the topics discussed at the second specialized course this year – Political Journalism.

  • What is the difference between a journalist who writes articles on business issues from one who reports on political or social issues?

  • What are the criteria that ensure the success of a media outlet? How the work is organized in an editorial office and how to manage a team of reporters, cameramen, drivers, editors and publishers? Is or not the media a business and how much does it cost to launch a TV, radio station, or a news portal? SAJ students have learned all that at the course of Media Management.
