Manisha Jha, who was awarded a Marjorie Deane studentship for 2014/15, has accepted a job as a reporter for Bloomberg, in London. She was offered the post after earning a coveted spot on one of Bloomberg’s summer internship programmes. Manisha says:
“As a budding business reporter from India, getting the Marjorie Deane studentship to pursue a Masters in Financial Journalism in London was a life changing moment for me.
It bolstered my confidence, helped me to develop an international outlook, and made me more aware of my strengths and weaknesses as a reporter. The course helped me to land work experience with CNBC, The Leasing Foundation and the Financial Times.
This would not have been possible without the financial support extended to me by the trustees of the Marjorie Deane Financial Journalism Foundation. I cannot thank them enough for believing in me, and for giving me the chance to embark on my dream career.”
