APPLY: MTN Media Innovation (MTN-MIP) Cohort 2 Registration Portal Opens

The Media Innovation Programme (MIP) has been launched by MTN Nigeria Communications Plc. and Pan-Atlantic University.

The MTN-MIP project was introduced in 2022 to support media practitioners and increase knowledge of the rapidly changing media world.

The six-month certificate fellowship is fully financed and includes a study tour to the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa as well as an innovation centre to foster ideas. It is available to print, electronic, and internet media practitioners, as well as social media content makers.



Commenting on the impact of the Media Innovation Programme, MTN Nigeria CEO Karl Toriola said, “The media is a crucial contributor to a thriving nation. Enhancing their skill set will benefit society at large. Through the Media Innovation Programme, we want to continue empowering media practitioners. Enabling them to report at an elevated level combining innovation with solution-oriented media practice to benefit their readers.”

Professor Enase Okonedo, Vice Chancellor Pan-Atlantic University, said, “At the Pan-Atlantic University, we provide training that will enable our students to uphold the highest intellectual, ethical and professional values in their professional and everyday endeavours. The MTN Media Innovation Programme is a melting pot of sessions and discussions promoting creative thinking, technology-forward practices, and honesty that enable participants to continue practising with journalistic integrity.”

Following a review of applications, 20 professionals will join the 2023 MIP cohort. The multifaceted programme will give them a unique opportunity to explore Nigeria’s technology sector and the nexus between media and technology. It will also equip them with the skills to adapt to our changing realities.
