As Commits enters its 16th year, it is time for us to re-imagine the future. In 2001 Commits was a fledgling media institute without ancestry, but one small team that had nothing in common except passion and professionalism, ensured a giant leap for Commits. There was only one word directing and defining it: Excellence! Even today that team continues to steer Commits to greater heights.
Challenging the odds and building a reputation in the media industry became a delightful activity for us. Excellence became a way of life at Commits. Generations of students passed through the portals celebrating this spirit and creating history. Awards and laurels flowed freely; the industry acknowledged and sought Commitscions; professionals expressed keenness to share their knowledge and experience. Today, Commitscions are visible at the highest echelons of power and creativity: World Bank, BBC, NBC, Discovery, Times Now, NDTV, CNN, Eros, Zee, Star, Amazon, Cricinfo, Flipkart, IBM, LG, Gulf News, Ogilvy, Saatchi, Dentsu, JWT, Infosys, Wipro, Bloomberg, UK-India Business Council … I could go on. As confidence became the characteristic of every Commitscion, Commits earned a reputation for being not just a college but a life-changing experience.
Our strength has always been our students. We have chosen to remain small (believe me, having a huge campus makes no difference to one’s career) because we feel the bigger we get the further we move away from our students and their aspirations.
In addition to our flagship two year courses we launched one year programmes last year, and the students have already received pre-placement offers. We are moving towards becoming the first choice of every student aspiring for a career in journalism, media and communication. Our Marketing Communication course, especially, is a unique and one-of-its-kind non-MBA programme with immense potential for a high growth career.
There is only one thing that will be visible at Commits to the students: discipline, professionalism, and excellence.
Welcome to Commits.
