Future Media Management Programme 2016-2017

The Centre for Media Studies at SSE Riga is launching a new four-module programme for news media founders, chief editors and publishers. 

This new programme is designed for journalists and media managers from Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine who direct independent news outlets and want to develop sustainable business models for their enterprises.

In four week-long modules, founders or directors of both non-profit and for-profit independent outlets will improve their leadership, strategy, marketing and financial accounting skills. They will study both fundamentals of management and emerging models of innovative news media. They will also apply their learning directly to plans for their own enterprises.


The programme will take place in Riga in four separate modules:

  • LEADERSHIP, December 5–10, 2016
  • STRATEGY, March 13–18, 2017
  • MARKETING, June 12–17, 2017
  • ACCOUNTING, September 11–18, 2017

Up to 20 participants will be selected for the programme, all of whom will receive full financial sponsorship.
Online application deadline: November 1, 2016.
