|The Fordham Fellowship in Media Leadership,
in partnership with the Foundation of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, is a non-credit professional certificate program for emerging leaders in media organizations. The program integrates interdisciplinary scholarship and industry expertise to create a transformative educational and professional experience. Participants will learn about and reflect upon topics in business, ethics, technology and law. The program offers a rare opportunity for professionals not only to engage in a vibrant dialogue with peers from other organizations, but also the chance to interact with top media leaders in master classes and forums that will be facilitated by the National Television Academy.
Over a nine-month period, an elite group of 30 participants will spend 15 Saturdays at Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus engaged in an intensive, intellectual discussion led by Fordham University’s accomplished faculty. Saturdays will begin with a morning course from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Following a one-hour break for lunch, the day will conclude with an afternoon course from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
