The Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) shall begin entrepreneurship courses to enable its graduates to create jobs for themselves.
This was contained in an interview with the Dialy Graphic by the Rector of the institute, Professor Kwamena Kwansah-Aidoo.
According to the Rector, the purpose of the introduction of Entrepreneurial courses was to shift the focus from many of the graduates depending on securing jobs in the media to create jobs for themselves in other sectors of the economy using their communication skills and knowledge.
The Rector said there was the need to equip students with skills that will help them to survive on their own in entrepreneurial and digital skills.
He added, that even though many people were moving away from picking a bulky newspaper to read, it did not mean that people did not want news or they were no longer reading.
“People want news and that is where the digital media comes in handy. There are other ways of surviving using the journalistic and other communication skills that you have acquired in school outside of the print media environment”. He said.
