Professor Mathew Tsamenyi, Programs Director of CEIBS noted at the launch that “We are in an ever changing competitive environment where the media organizations need to get and understand current management practice.

This program seeks to develop competencies and skills of their employees and management to propel them to the next level.

Professor Tsamenyi called on companies to sponsor their employees. He said “I will urge companies to sponsor their employees because this is an investment which will yield great returns for them. The structure of the program will develop competencies in different areas and will help put these organizations ahead of their competitors.”

Mrs. Rosemond Aryeetey, Head of Corporate Communications at GMA said “This program has been designed to fill a gaping void, as it is specifically designed to address the unique challenges media executives face in their day to day working lives, and proffer collaborative solutions that blends leadership and management principles with the realities of a super dynamic media environment.” She added that ‘This speed of advancement, naturally, calls for media executives to upgrade their knowledge and skills to remain relevant and stay abreast or ahead of the phenomenal changes we are witnessing”.
