2. THE CURRICULUM
We have a very innovative curriculum. We keep changing this curriculum because, in our ever-changing world, demands for journalism and business are changing.
3. THE GBJ EXPERIENCE
This program offers very valuable learning experiences. The learning experience makes it a one-plus-one-is-larger-than-two situation. The learning experience in this program is highly enriching, not just because we have top-notch faculty but because of the students.
4. THE STUDENTS
We have a very diverse group of students. They are not only very diverse culturally, they are very diverse professionally. All the diversity — the cultural diversity and professional diversity — just creates such a dynamic class environment.
5. THE GBJ NETWORK
Connections are really important. We have this large international network of GBJers – our network of GBJ graduates. That offers you connections across the world if you want to work in journalism.
