Sundus Sabah, an image editor at Al-Diyar satellite channel, said she improved her creative writing skills by attending the training session in marketing.

“The course was like a deep well of valuable information. This new knowledge has helped me improve my career,” the 23-year-old said.

The instruction in marketing was delivered by Abdul Nasir Ali, a leading lecturer in economics and management, who was impressed by the calibre of participants.

“The trainees showed great enthusiasm and an aptitude to learn more,” he said. “They were highly imaginative and mentally agile.”

Zina Safaa, a 29-year-old correspondent for the Karbala satellite TV channel, said she would now be able to do her own filming for her reports.

“The course enlightened me,” she said. “I’m more confident now, because I can make my dreams a reality.”
