Promo Pathway is the nation’s first accredited on-air promotions training program. Produced in partnership with Promax BDA — and with the generous support of the PromaxBDA Diversity Council—this one-year program immerses emerging talent in our industry through an exciting hands-on curriculum. Students graduate with a comprehensive understanding of entertainment marketing and promotion and the essential skills needed to launch their careers as preditors, writers, producers and editors.

Interactive courses include a combination of writing, editing, production and design and are taught by leading industry professionals and PromaxBDA members. Students have opportunities to gain real-world experience through internships at networks, agencies, and studios. Promo Pathway allows the students build their networks through one-on-one creative coaching and professional development workshops.
