Answer

@jeffjarvis

The ability to start and run new and sustainable journalistic enterprises. That could be a startup. It could be part of a larger company. But it's clear the future of journalism has to come from innovation and it's clear that we must find means to sustain journalism that fit into new business realities (cue PowerPoint slides about abundance vs. scarcity, the link vs. ink economy, process vs. product) Things have changed fundamentally and permanently and we need new models to succeed. We will teach our students the dynamics and skills of business and the media business and help them incubate their own businesses.
