The program will concomitantly contribute towards research and enhance the skills of the graduates for enhanced productivity. Central to the IDGCG are both multidisciplinary approaches and authentic international visions. Graduates will be equipped with philosophical, theoretical and hands-on expertise required in Global Communication and Governance to meet the challenges in the global communication industry and international information flows, and to enhance international socio-economic progress in line with the global, regional and national communication trends.
