DEADLINE: Business Journalism Certificate program

Graduates of the Business Journalism Certificate program have gone onto jobs at The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Bloomberg News, Reuters and other business media, as well as jobs in corporate communications.

The certificate in business journalism is offered for students interested in a career in business reporting or editing for the media as well as students interested in careers in corporate communication. Students must complete “MEJO 541: Economics Reporting,” “MEJO 542: Business Reporting” and “MEJO 550: Business and the Media” with at least a C grade in each course. Students who earn a C- or lower grade in any certificate course will not receive the certificate.

Students apply in the fall. Students will then be asked to explain their interest in business journalism and how they feel it will help them achieve their career goals. A panel comprised of the certificate program director, the dean (or designate) and the senior associate dean for undergraduate studies will select a maximum of 15 students from each class year to enroll in the program. Students will be selected on interest, academic performance and work experience.

For questions, contact Walter E. Hussman Sr. Distinguished Professor Chris Roush.
