MUMBAI: Given the technological metamorphosis that out-of-home (OOH) is currently witnessing, it has emerged as one of the fastest growing segments in the Marketing Communications industry.

For the young job seeking community, the sector has opened up lucrative career opportunities. Consequently, with much room to maneuver for ambitious youngsters, Dentsu Aegis Network and Northpoint have announced the launch of the ‘Post Graduate Program in Out Of Home Advertising (The PGP-OOHA) programme. 

The PGP-OOHA programme is being conducted by Northpoint Centre of Learning, a Management Resource Development Centre, located in Khandala, in collaboration with the leading out-of-home agencies - Posterscope India and Milestone Brandcom.

Designed to develop future managers, the course is a six-month fast-track post graduate career programme.  It is designed to give a thorough working knowledge of OOH advertising and communications including retail, rural and experiential and how they are all inter-related. 

The course comprises modules, research projects and workshops followed by an internship with Posterscope and Milestone Brandcom.

A strong emphasis will be laid on student performance evaluation through projects and practical assignments and research done by the students. While the entire semester will provide a comprehensive perspective of OOH advertising and communications, the latter part will be project-based with hands-on production and execution experiences.

Northpoint Centre of Learning chairman Prem Mehta said, “The launch of this program is another step in keeping with Northpoint’s mission to prepare young graduates for careers in specialised areas of business.  Once again, Northpoint has tied up with the leaders in the OOH industry to ensure relevance of training content, training by industry professionals and substantial field and on-job internships to prepare job-ready managers.”

Dentsu Aegis Network chairman and CEO South Asia and Posterscope and psLive - Asia Pacific chairman Ashish Bhasin stated, “Today, Dentsu Aegis Network is amongst the fastest growing communications groups in India and understand the need of trained talent that the industry currently needs. Therefore, we are committed to developing professional talent for the industry as a partner on this programme.”

Dentsu Aegis Network will consider all successful candidates for final placement.

Milestone Brandcom MD and CEO Nabendu Bhattacharyya opined, “Our objective is to create and attract talent to the OOH Industry where no such formal program existed prior to this, we believe this OOH program will benefit many new entrants as well as the existing trade practitioners in this dynamic Industry. Our, overall objective is to bring in fresh minds into the OOH Communications business for the exponential growth of the Industry. As a Leading OOH Group, “OOH Program” is our contribution to the Industry.”

Posterscope Asia Pacific regional director and Posterscope Group India managing director Haresh Nayak added, “Posterscope has always prided itself in being innovators, be it in terms of team construct, offerings, services or thought leadership for the last 7 years. This initiative is an extension of that belief, of ‘innovating the way brands are built’ and talented people are the nucleus of innovation. This platform will attract and nurture these talents who will be the future minds and leaders in the Out of Home space.”
