If you are an Asia business journalist, this fellowship is definitely for you. It’s a good opportunity to study and develop your business and economic reporting skills at one of the world’s best universities. That’s all? No. It’s also a good start for you to start networking. ‘World-class’ networking.
It’s a program funded by The Wall Street Journal, in association with New York University, for one or two promising journalists from Asia to enroll in the three-semester masters program in business and economic reporting at the NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute.
The intensive sixteen-month program, which has graduated a number of Journal and Dow Jones Newswires reporters in recent years, features a unique interdisciplinary curriculum of both journalism and MBA courses and a remarkably low 4:1 student-to-faculty ratio, providing both intellectual rigor as well as hands-on mentoring for a dozen hand-picked students.
Candidate submissions will be judged by a team of Journal editors working in conjunction with NYU professors. All applications must be received by January 22, 2010.
