About The Institute
The Media and Entertainment industry is poised to grow at a fast pace. According to the FICCI-KPMG report 2015 the Indian market size for the year 2014 was estimated INR1026 billion. The market is expected to grow at a firm 13.9% between years 2015 and 2019. Digital Advertising, Radio, Animation & VFX as well as Television are expected to be affected by this growth.
The current education industry has a long way to go in order to achieve this increasing demand. Moreover, the Media and Entertainment industry requires Gen-Next professionals to wake up to this new dawn of development. The technology is changing at a pace faster than light. There is a need to create new wave media professionals who could deal with the new wave technology.
This thought has given birth to a Media and Communications course designed to cater to growing need of the Media and Communications industry. LJIMC is a course that believes in need based education so that our students can stand the competition arising from the world of Media and Entertainment industry.
