Media Industry Trend in Bangladesh: Today and Tomorrow
-Syed Mizanur Rahman
With an assumption of having potential market for quality education on TV, Film and Media in Bangladesh, the present research was conducted involving primary and secondary data sources simultaneously. Ninety five (95) respondents include professionals from the universities and institutions offering media education, HR heads of media houses, media professionals, job seekers, students of different universities on related subjects and potential students of different colleges. The findings show that demand for media professionals is high whereas the supply is poor. While the young generation is eager and capable to study and spend money for getting quality media education (TV production, editing, sound engineering, film making etc.), there is still a little scope for obtaining such education. The paper argues that developing a media industry focusing on quality media education is a call of the day and will in the long run keep cultural orientation global, contribute in GDP growth, and increase skilled human resources migration all over the world. This is the high time to initiate and enhance the facility and standard of media education in Bangladesh. We must understand that every singe day is crucial as potential candidates are looking for other options available (may be low quality) in the country or abroad (with high price).
