The Bloomberg Media Initiative Africa (BMIA) Executive Training Program


Program overview

It is well documented that many key economies on the African continent are growing in leaps and bounds, yet the positive impact on development and progress in civil society is not fully realised. The role that journalism plays in society and democracy cannot be underestimated.

The Bloomberg Media Initiative Africa (BMIA) aims to increase the pipeline of skilled financial journalists and analysts, embracing a data-driven journalism culture across Africa. If well trained, the contribution that financial journalists and development experts can make as continental informers, educators and watchdogs is significant.

This interactive and hands-on program aims to enhance the skills and knowledge of media professionals to better serve the public interest as a critical part of continental development and progress.

Bloomberg has collaborated with a consortium of pre-eminent journalism schools and top business schools across three key African markets to deliver a highly innovative, integrated and practical world-class executive training program that is firmly rooted in African market realities.

Delegates will receive copies of "The Bloomberg Way", a guide for reporters and editors written by Matthew Winkler, Editor-in-Chief Emeritus, Bloomberg News. During the six-month program, delegates will also be granted a free subscription to the Bloomberg Professional Service. This subscription will give delegates free access to the world-class analytics, key industry data, market moving news and analysis that the Bloomberg Professional Service provides.
