Professional Media Leadership Programmes

The Reuters Institute offers a range of professional media leadership programmes. These are designed to give senior managers and editorial staff the chance to reflect on current challenges faced by media organisations, as well the latest journalism trends, in small groups with fellow media practitioners. Workshops, summer schools and short courses are usually held at the Reuters Institute, close to central Oxford.

Oxford Perspectives: Envisioning the Newsroom in 2020, is led by Alexandra Borchardt, former managing editor at Sueddeutsche Zeitung, who joined the institute in 2017. Workshops and discussions on the most recent media research, tools and innovations are led by Reuters Institute directors, associates and experienced practitioners. Respected industry leaders are invited to give keynote speeches and recent speakers include Alan Rusbridger, former editor-in-chief of The Guardian and Renee Kaplan, head of audience engagement at the Financial Times.

“Three days of seminar with a small, selected and international audience of colleagues is a challenge to newsroom general wisdom and an antidote to lazy pessimism.”

- Carlo Bonini, Senior Investigative Editor and Correspondent at large, La Repubblica, Rome. Participant in Oxford Perspectives, November 2017

Other programmes include an Editor-in-Chief and CEO Forum and regular Summer Schools. For more information about the September 2018 Summer School, click here.
