While many traditional roles in newsrooms are disappearing, financial journalism is growing. The Financial Journalism course is a unique programme that aims to train the participant to work as a financial journalist and will provide the participant with a firm grounding in corporate, financial and economic reporting, the ability to understand and manipulate financial data and to critically analyse announcements by companies and government departments. The participant will learn to discover the world of markets and companies, international trade and government policy, where there is always the next assignment to chase.
The current crisis in global banking, markets and economies has reminded us of the importance of financial journalism. It has also raised a set of profound questions as to the quality of that form of reporting. It does make us ask about the ability of journalism to report upon financial affairs in a way that lets the public know what is really going on. This program will help participants develop a range of professional journalism skills and knowledge needed to work in a fast-paced financial environment.
