This new study examines the effects of DW Akademie's efforts in improving journalism education in Bangladesh since 2014.
What obstacles do Bangladeshis face when they want to become journalists? What enables or restricts them from acquiring the necessary skills to succeed in professional journalism? These were some of the key questions behind the study "Journalism education in Bangladesh: From aspiring journalists to career professionals".
The study examines the effects of DW Akademie's efforts in Bangladesh since 2014. DW Akademie aims to better qualify journalism graduates and young journalists for their work in the media. The study identifies the needs of key actors (new and aspiring journalists, journalism education institutions, and media houses) in the context of these endeavors. It also aims to find out what contribution these players could make to DW Akademie’s long-term project and to improving the job market for journalists.
