About Us

Located in heart of Dubai, World Media Academy (WMA) is a course brand run by EMDI (Overseas) FZ LLC – to become a leading media training institution in the UAE. WMA courses are in the fields of  Journalism, Public Relations, Broadcast Communication and New Media. The goal of WMA Dubai is to provide a specific range of skill sets that foster the career goals of students in the fields of media & communications.  Offering both long format professional courses (diploma equivalent) and short term certificate programs, WMA offers students a range of flexible options to break into the media business. In addition, WMA offers a variety of internship programs for enrolled students providing them access to real world work experience.

The course content was initially setup in collaboration with the International Centre for Journalists and the Knight Foundation in USA to improve standards and ethics in the media communication industry. The UAE  offers one of the most business friendly media environments in the Middle East region, which has led to the presence of a wide variety of international and local media organizations that offer employment and internship opportunities for future WMA graduates. WMA approaches education with a consistent focus on practical application versus theoretical overview, ensuring that students not only build the necessary skills to excel in the media and communication industries, but also earn a clear understanding of how each industry works from the inside out. Graduates will emerge as fully converged, all-platform journalists, ready to take on the industry.

WMA is a venture of EMDI (Overseas) FZ LLC, an international training institute set up in 2002 training over 1000 students annually in the Middle East and Asia. EMDI offers a diverse range of courses to students in Dubai and abroad including Events Management, Advertising, Graphic Design, and Wedding Planning.
