With the objective of promoting excellence in the field of media, the Times Group started in 1985 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 1990, it set up up the Times Centre for Media Studies in Delhi (renamed as Times Centre for Media and Management Studies in 2010) which started offering the journalism programme under the brand name Times School of Journalism (which was made into a separate company in 2010).
Times Centre for Media Studies additionally started a programme for marketing aspirants under the brand of Times School of Marketing (which was also made into a separate company in 2010 called Times School of Marketing and Management - TSMM). The vision for Times Centre for Media Studies was to build young graduates tuned to the discipline of media and marketing as well as giving them a definitive insight into the workings of the Times Group.
