RBK, Esquire and The Village journalists teach Perm HSE students how to captivate their readers
HSE Perm students attended a spring school on communications in Moscow, organised by the School of Integrated Communications and School of Media. ‘The spring school in communications is an intercampus mobility project,’ explains the project’s curator, Viktoria Matvienko. ‘Students from the Perm campus come to Moscow to gain knowledge and skills to help them produce better quality work more effectively.’ Those who came are part of a group who created their own students’ press centre on the Perm campus.
The spring school programme included master classes by editors of leading Moscow media outlets, guided lectures at agencies and meetings with journalists and university teachers. Dmitry Khrapunov, Elizaveta Krasnova, (ID MediaLine), Sergei Kuznetsov, Svetlana Prosvirova (Element Group), Damir Khalipov (GreenPR), Igor Sadreyev (Esquire), Roman Balandin (RBK) Kristina Farberova (The Village), editors of the student publications The Вышка, Maria Kristalinskaya, Yulia Myshlyaeva and HSE Faculty of Communications, Media and Design teachers Alexandra Yendaltseva and Gulim Amirkhanov all gave talks to the students. The School finished with a Festival of Media, Advertising and Design.
Last semester, journalism students and international exchange students were able to select two subjects taught in English: American Political Rhetoric and Journalism and International Environment. We decided to learn more about these courses from students and teachers.
Several HSE graduates worked at the Olympic Games, which recently came to a close in Rio. Elena Stenkina, Daria Smirnova, and Evgenia Dolina told the HSE news service how they came into the sports industry thanks to HSE, even though several years ago they couldn’t even imagine having anything to do with sports.
In November, Ilya Azar, a journalist and graduate of the Higher School of Economics, won the HSE Alumni Awards in the category ‘Fourth Estate’. In this edition of Success Builder, Ilya speaks about how to get a job in the media, what journalistic ethics are, and how to survive in the hot spots without body armour.
A book entitled The Mythologies of Capitalism and the End of the Soviet Project by Associate Professor at the HSE Faculty of Media Communications Olga Baysha has been published by Lexington Books (United States).
