International Course on Broadcast Management, Netherlands


RNTC is a centre of excellence in the field of media, development and education.

RNTC designs and implements projects that support the development of the media sector and the effective use of media for development. RNTC does this in the developing world and in countries in transition.

Course aim

To strengthen the capacity of managers working in the media sector (in programme and/or journalism management) to contribute to organisational development in a changing media environment.

Course information

Broadcast management: a discipline in it’s own right

More than ever broadcast managers have a crucial role to play in ensuring the success and the future of their organisations. Whether working for state, public, private or commercial broadcasters managers face the challenge of having to help their organisations adapt and thrive in an increasingly competitive media industry. Characteristic of the industry are rapid technological change, fragmented and fickle audiences able to choose from a growing number of media outlets, and a complex, shifting political and legislative environment.

The course will emphasise exchanging and sharing knowledge and experience with the other international broadcast managers on the course. Working visits to broadcast public and commercial organisations in the Netherlands will allow participants to gain insights into other broadcast management structures and practices, and to discuss problems and potential solutions with colleagues working at similar management levels.

All RNTC’s courses are targeted at media professionals from developing countries and countries in transition. If you are working for a media organisation, or an organisation working with the media, you can apply.
