About the Program:
The Bloomberg-UNC-Berkeley Business Journalism Diversity Program welcomes students who are interested in learning about business journalism. During the 5 day virtual program from May 17-21, 2021, you'll explore how journalists report effectively on the economy, companies, financial and commodity markets, government and labor where wealth and power converge.
The Bloomberg-UNC-Berkeley Business Journalism Diversity Program has two aims: to introduce current and future journalism students to the dynamic field of business journalism and to increase diversity among journalists reporting on business. It will provide participants unparalleled access to a leading financial news organization, as well as to some of the most influential people in the industry.
Participants of the program will:
Acquire a basic overview of markets and financial concepts. Learn the fundamentals of business journalism, one of the most in-demand fields in media today. Practice writing and reporting techniques via hands-on instruction with Bloomberg journalists. Gain insights on working in a diverse environment and the importance of representation in journalism. Join an accomplished group of fellow students and program alumni who will serve as mentors as you navigate your career path.
