Centre for Media & Entertainment Studies - CMES
CMES is an initiative of MICA to bring together academia and the media & entertainment industries to facilitate research-based solutions for enduring issues and problems. While focusing on academic research related to media and entertainment, grooming talents with industry orientation is also core to the Centre. The Centre would primarily create a collaborative platform for academia, industry, researchers and policy makers to find high-end research-based solutions for everyday challenges of the media and entertainment sector. It offers a training platform for students, practitioners and professionals to become the future media and entertainment industry leaders of India.
CMES is MICA’s quest to demystify the unique identity that ‘academia’ and ‘industry’ hold, as one is ‘the other’ for another. The Centre is an attempt to break the silos and bring both ‘academia’ and ‘industry’ together and provide a platform where knowledge will be generated to sustain practices.
