MTN MIP 2 South Africa

[PHOTOS] MTN MIP Fellows Visit MTN Group HQ, DIRCO, SAIIA and University of Johannesburg During Study Trip


Fellows of the MTN Media Innovation Programme (MIP) Cohort 2 recently visited South Africa as part of their six-month fellowship.

The Fellows spent time engaging in academic, diplomatic, and business interactions at the University of Johannesburg, the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) in Pretoria, the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA), and MTN Group headquarters.

The diverse engagements were designed to facilitate rich learning, cross-cultural exchanges, and newfound perspectives, all of which have enriched their understanding of Nigerian-South African relations, global issues, Business Journalism in Africa, Media Business Opportunities in Africa, Imperatives of Development Journalism, and the role of new media in shaping public discourse in Africa.
