From the dawn of times, stories have brought people together. There is no better place in the region than the Mohammed Bin Rashid School for Communication (MBRSC) to construct powerful stories and incorporate the latest communication technologies that enable them.
The MBRSC curricula are crafted to meet the needs of the region and the standards followed by the best media schools in the USA. They combine theory and practice to invigorate students’ creativity and ground them in frameworks to understand, uncover, predict, and infer. The School pays exceptional attention to detail be it in choosing its faculty, designing its courses, or coaching its students to make sure they succeed.
As a group of accomplished professionals and academicians, the MBRSC faculty and staff see their professional development as inseparable from the academic progress of their students. The School pulsates with life: Faculty, staff, and students are constantly learning, experimenting, discussing, and screening journalistic endeavors from near and far.
Situated in Media City, the School is just a short walk away from some of the most prominent media and news companies in the region. On campus, students continue to have opportunities to grow professionally through the School’s online newspaper and Original Narrative (ON), its annual Student International Film Festival. Here, our students are encouraged to experiment, explore and develop their interests and talents and collaborate.
On average, nine out of ten undergraduate alumni have gone to join the work force. Those who are not working typically pursue graduate studies. The MBRSC strives to teach you to make exceptional films, craft impactful documentaries, uncover news and unravel investigative stories ultimately preparing you to join the work force with confidence and a creative mindset.
