We all are connected through different means of communication. Over the past few years, India has witnessed an extraordinary growth within the field of communication. Technology has majorly influenced the way people are consuming information today. Whether it is the latest news or cricket scores or update about any international event, we get to know about it all, thanks to technology and mass media. Social media has made it possible to share mundane news with hundreds or even thousands of people. There has been an increase in the demand for requisite knowledge and professional skills to meet the challenges and to make use of the opportunities that exist today. While it might be true to say that the traditional print media is almost disappearing from today's world, it is not accurate to assume that there is no longer a need for communications oriented individuals to take the mantle of mass media into future generations. Young people are entering this field in increasing numbers, taking advantage of new programs being offered by some of the most prestigious colleges and universities around the world.
Even though physical form of media is fading away, media and mass communication still takes place in many forms and is taught at many colleges. This issue of Higher Education Review Magazine showcases a list of "10 Most Promising Media & Mass Communication Colleges in India - 2019". We strongly believe that it is important to bring such institution to the limelight, so that, their ideologies and methodologies can inspire other institutions as well as students to pursue this career. On the cover, we feature, International School of Media & Entertainment Studies (ISOMES), a media and entertainment academy that would provide a holistic blend of academic pursuit and industry excellence to aspirants who wish to make it big in the fascinating media industry. Hope this feature helps you in your future endeavors and we achieve our mission.
