Study Objectives:
I aim to play a key role in the conception of India's first international TV news channel. With India's economic rise, the world and India are more interested in each other than ever before – an international channel would satiate this two-way interest. It also has the potential of being the voice of the developing world in a space dominated by developed nations. During my Master's program in the U.S., I will gain valuable editorial and technological experience in an international environment. What I learn and the people I meet there will form a great resource base for the future.
