MASCOM prepared me for the rigours of the newsdesk. Thanks to the challenging training I received there, I found it easy to adapt myself to the routine of a magazine desk. I’d say MASCOM is the best boot camp for aspiring editors.

MASCOM was a fulfilling experience, for me at least. The basic concepts and the nuances of journalism are drilled into you in a way they become a part of you for the rest of your life... not to mention the fond memories of the Erayilkadavu Road.

The training at MASCOM is not just about editing, reporting and page-making. It helped me improve my language, learn the importance of team work in bringing out a paper and prepared me to handle difficult situations.

MASCOM lays a solid foundation for a career in journalism. The hands-on training I got here has stood me in good stead. Anybody who has attended Prof Oommen’s classes knows what a great teacher he is. The do’s and don’ts of editing that he taught remain with me even as I progress in my career.

The training here grooms a student to work in any media industry. It has helped me work under the pressure of deadline and report news based on facts. Each and every assignment has helped me a lot to work in a daily newspaper with confidence.

The training at MASCOM, involving the production of a weekly, is the best introduction to the industry for a journalism student. On most days at work, I am reminded of the usefulness of lessons learnt at the institute. MASCOM would be an advantage for every budding journalist.

MASCOM moulded my personality and objectives. It was not just an institution - it was like a family. The home-like atmosphere, the friendly nature of the faculty and the training programme together came as a very different experience for all of us. The very practical approach to journalism is the hallmark of MASCOM. The process of page-making and the critical analysis of the pages that followed were very exciting.

MASCOM was the best learning ground I could have got. The field training and the exposure to different strains of thought were the best part of my stay there. In my very first job after leaving MASCOM, I was able to quickly adapt myself to the environment at the new office, edit stories, design pages and keep to deadlines - all thanks to the training at MASCOM.

MASCOM definitely paved my way to a journalism career. The lessons I learnt there really helped me become a good journalist, develop a nose for news and find good stories.
