St Pauls Institute of Communication Education is one of the few institutes in Mumbai, exclusively dedicated to media studies. We have been fortunate to attract top practitioners from the industry to come and impart their practical knowledge to the students. Our institute – through its focused media studies approach- prepares students to be industry ready.

Our postgraduate programmes expose our students to the multi-disciplinary fields of media and pays equal importance to consumer behaviour, market research and business development. As these courses are built on strong industry interfaces, it gets easier for our students to get placed with some of the better known firms, and leading media organizations.

A ‘Live Client’ module has the students interact with a client like a full fledged agency thus helping them face the challenges of the real world and hit the ground running.

While we guarantee internship opportunities to all our students as part of the course, most of our students also get placed at the agencies they intern with.

St Pauls Institute of Communication Education postgraduate alumni have interned with and found work in the field of  advertising, public relations, marketing, design, digital publishing as well as ad and film production and other new age operations such as event planning and management and artiste management.
