We’re excited to be launching a new program at the new Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
This semester we’re piloting a semester-long program in Entrepreneurial Journalism aimed at exceptional mid-career journalists and rising journalism stars. The five-course program is offered on a pilot basis this Winter/Spring.
The program trains students in innovation and business management, guiding them through research into viable business models. Students in the program produce plans for sustainable journalistic enterprises.
The Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism was established in 2010 through the generous support of The Tow Foundation and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The Center allows the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism to take an academic leadership position in the growing field of entrepreneurial journalism.
We are optimists about the future of news. We believe the future of journalism will be shaped by entrepreneurs who develop new business models and innovative projects – either working on their own or within traditional media organizations.
