Sri Sri Centre for Media Studies (SSCMS) has reinvented the very design for "media education" . All trainers and faculty are best in class professionals currently relevant and deeply involved in the media industry. The result of this new design has made a great impact on the graduates coming out of the institute. It has resulted in the students getting an immediate practical influence into the industry in addition to the necessary professional competencies. SSCMS has strived and achieved the status of an institute that eliminates the gap between the capabilities & skills of a student and that of the corresponding requirements in the media industry.
Faculty are complemented by the advice and experience of the Academic Council and Advisory Board as well as several visitors who come in as guest lecturers to the institute.
