Back for its 36th year, the MRG Evening Classes will take place face-to-face every Monday (for 8 weeks) from 10th October to 28th November.

The programme covers TV, radio, OOH, cinema, print, social media and digital. There are also papers about international media and the use of insight within the strategy and planning process.

The Evening Classes are designed for new joiners to the media industry (up to three years’ experience). They provide a good introduction to media research and the industry currencies. It will also benefit those researchers who have had little or no exposure to the different media currencies or people returning to the industry.
