Bloomberg Commits to Providing a Full-time Faculty for GBJ

Nov 232009

Bloomberg, one of the founding sponsors of the GBJ program, has committed to establishing, through the auspices of the International Center for Journalists, a Bloomberg Professor of business journalism at the journalism school at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China.

Lee Miller, Bloomberg News editor-at-large in Asia, will start teaching in January 2010 as the Bloomberg Professor. Miller has been a strong and enthusiastic supporter of the GBJ program since its start, regularly traveling to Beijing to train students and faculty on how to use Bloomberg terminals and access real-time financial data.

ICFJ welcomes Bloomberg’s continued commitment to advancing quality business journalism in China. The Bloomberg Professor will further enhance the GBJ curriculum and directly benefit GBJ students at Tsinghua University.
