EMDI Institute Of Media & Communication

Introduction

Without substance, there is no success — and our success reflects just how good we are at what we do.

The world is shrinking, becoming one giant marketplace, within reach of just about everyone. Businesses today are spreading across geographies, mainly because of technical and technological advances. Technology has also brought about a revolution of a different sort. Digitalization is empowering the youth by increasing their employability via skill enhancement. This means a whole new world of fun, creative jobs has opened up for people.All you need today is the will, the creativity and EMDI by your side!

EMDI’s journey started 14 years ago in the heart of Mumbai with a vision to offer industry-apt, career-focused event management, advertising and other media related courses. EMDI has since spread its wings and is now also a leading institute in the Middle East and Africa. Within India, EMDI continues to expand to a growing network of locations. Our campus in Mumbai is a microcosm of India, what with over 40 per cent students from across the country, to whom we offer every possible assistance, which includes find them safe accomodations. We are their home away from home!

With the event management and media curricula planned and designed by industry stalwarts, our courses hit the nail on the head with recruiters. The measure of our success lies in that of our students, who are working with the best brands across the country. Whether it is assisting on blockbuster events, in-house events and campaigns such as SWAT; or our past events like ‘If Bar No Car’ and ‘Bulbit’, or handling a live press conference and working on real advertising client briefs, we passionately ensure that our students receive every opportunity to shine in the enthralling world of media.
