The School of Communications and Reputation (SCoRe), a premier institute created by seasoned PR professionals to train the fresh talent entering the industry, announced admissions for its full-time online programme today. The 10-month long programme – Post Graduation in Public Relations Lite - is for graduates looking to build a strong foundation for a career in public relations and corporate communications and can be completed remotely through video conferencing. This means that a graduate in a far-off town is able to pursue their aspiration of becoming a PR professional, without having to relocate.
Supported by the Public Relations Consultant Association of India (PRCAI), it is also available to those with work experience looking to join PR consultancies.
The programme offers more than 350 sessions including over 30 masterclasses conducted by industry veterans. It aims to address the growing talent crunch in the communication profession at the entry level. Students also get other learning opportunities through access to online events for free and offline events at discounted prices in future.
Programme includes access to the latest curriculum of SCoRe’s flagship programme, collaborative learning with students of the flagship programme, and learning from dozens of PR and corporate communications leaders.
Students who successfully complete the programme also earn a PG Certificate in public relations and corporate communications endorsed by PRCAI.
“The communication industry needs well prepared and committed professionals with wide range of competencies to deal with the complex issues and churn out powerful strategies and compelling campaigns. SCoRe’s PRGPR Lite programme is designed to address this need by honing the young minds to be the future leaders and enable them to contribute meaningfully to the profession” says Hemant Gaule, Dean, SCoRe.
