( Founder & Managing Director )
AAFT has grown as one of the finest institutions not only in India but also abroad. The academy has evolved from strength, meeting the challenges of new millennium and further empowering our education and practical training programmes in order to make them more responsive to the market realities. The trials and tribulations involved in ensuring that our young students make a niche for themselves in the media and entertainment industry has been a very rewarding experience. We cherish our achievements through success of our students.
Authentic fame and popularity always travel by the word of mouth and in our case this has spread to overseas also. AAFT’s high professional standards have come in for praise from all walks of life. Students from 120 countries have enrolled in our training programmes at some stage or the other, a large percentage being from Europe, Middle East, Far East and the Pacific Rim regions, and not to forget those from our neighbouring countries. The ever sprawling campus and infrastructure has an international milieu and flavour.
AAFT School of Mass Communication is one of its kinds in the country devoted to journalism in print media and new age media, its theory and aesthetics. We have expanded our focus on mass communication studies to include broadcast television, radio, and digital media as well. Our academic programmes are tailored to meet the needs of the hour and sensitive to learners of different types. Several special initiatives in the field of mass media communication, such as documentary and podcast making, international and global studies, investigative journalism, narrative nonfiction writing, public relations, political communication, as well as print and online news reporting, have enabled us develop remarkable talent.
This institution stands for its promise to be a trendsetter in the field of media education. We passionately assume the responsibility of giving a nurturing environment to every student so as to enable them realize their goals in an increasingly competitive world where continuous learning and up-skilling have become essential. We are indeed indebted to all our faculty members, visiting professors and members of the cinematic and TV industry for their keen interest and support to our students. A special thanks to our large international faculty for the regular knowledge-exchange.
We hope this overview of the School, its core values, its programmes and its collaborations with the industry will pique your interest. We encourage you to carefully explore the AAFT website and take the next step in ‘creating your tomorrow’.
