Testimonials

The College counsels students on placement and assists them by arranging on-and-off-campus interviews at the end of the academic year. ACJ has become the preferred destination for media organisations in search of talented and capable young recruits and has been registering excellent placement for many years. ACJ graduates are currently working in news organisations throughout India and abroad. The media employers of the previous batches of ACJ graduates include.

The Times of India, The Economic Times, The Hindu, The Indian Express, The New Indian Express, Mint, The Asian Age, The Telegraph, The Statesman, The Hindustan Times, Frontline, Business Standard, Business Line, Digit, UNI, NDTV, CNN-IBN, Times Now, CNBC, Aaj Tak, Headlines Today, Star News, NewsX, ANI, Reuters, ETV, UTV, TV9, Cricinfo, Sify.com, and Big FM Radio.


The staggering boom in news television came with an accompanying roadblock – the lack of quality young women and men, who possess the right attitude, training and mindset. We in the industry, weren’t just looking for qualification but employability as well. Asian College of Journalism has been a consistent exception. We have dozens ACJ alumni in our newsrooms, and I have always found them to be far superior and better and more practically trained to handle the real world of news. For us, it’s the first “go-to” institute when we think of hiring quality. Vinay Tewari
Managing Editor, CNN IBN
“I visited ACJ to interview candidates...It was an experience both rewarding and gratifying. I came away wishing I had an entire department to fill, instead of a paltry two vacancies. The two young women who accepted our offer have borne out the promise they showed at the interview. They consistently display a fresh approach and a personal style in addition to their solid journalistic skills.”
“Congratulations are due to ACJ for the impeccable standards of journalism being upheld. The students are indeed well informed and diligent. Keep up the good work.”
Aroon Purie,
CEO, The India Today Group and Chairman, TV Today

Reuters has been directly engaged with the students and the faculty of ACJ since the opening of our Bangalore operation in 2004. The main aim has been recruitment, but in 2006 we launched the Reuters Business Journalism course to help develop a broader interest in business reporting among ACJ students. We are constantly impressed with the enthusiasm and the calibre of the students we meet here, and many of your alumni - including Akshay Lodaya, who is the head of our equities news operation in Bangalore - have joined Reuters and made very successful careers for themselves.

“At The Indian Express, we have found the students from ACJ highly committed and well-trained. It is reassuring to come across young people who are aware of realities beyond their immediate environment. ACJ students have a refreshing perspective of the profession and its possibilities. Their training is well¬-rounded and so comprehensive that they are already used to working very very hard, which is the best preparation for a journalistic career.”
Shekhar Gupta,
Editor-in-Chief & Group CEO,
The Indian Express Newspapers
“I have found the students from ACJ outstanding without exception. The training there allows them to hit the ground running; most of them are able to get straight down to the job with very little handholding. They are all willing workers with well¬-developed journalism skills.”
Senthil Chengalvarayan, Executive Editor, CNBC

“For at least eight years now, the bulk of THE HINDU’s annual recruitment for journalists has been from the Asian College of Journalism. We have had some outstanding candidates, who have emerged as our strengths in recent years. Our main disappointment is that they do not stay for long ...”
