Times School of Journalism was established in the year 1985,
Tracing its roots to 1838, the Times Group is India’s largest media house with a dominant presence across all media platforms and a footprint spanning the whole of Indian sub-continent. The flagship daily of the group - The Times of India – is today the largest English newspaper in the world with its sister publication – The Economic Times being world’s second-largest English business daily. With the mainstay of the group being creation and distribution of content, the Times Group employs some of the best minds in the business, who constantly endeavour to set new benchmarks in providing cutting-edge news, views and analysis to a varied section of the society – day in and day out.
With the objective of promoting excellence in the field of media, the Times Group set up the Times Centre for Media Studies in Delhi (now known as Times Centre for Media and Management Studies) in 1985 with a one-of-its-kind year-long programme in Social Journalism, which soon became the talk of the town as it was the first such offering by any media house in India. In the years to come the journalism courses were transcribed into a new unit called The Times School of Journalism. In 1990, TCMS added another school for marketing aspirants called Times School of Marketing (now known as the Times School of Marketing and Management). The vision for the school was to build young graduates tuned to the discipline of media-marketing as well as giving them a definitive insight into the workings of the Times Group. The annual programme was planned with the objective of giving an overview on all management functions with a deep insight into the discipline of marketing – with emphasis on media marketing and advertising.
