Hardeep Kour Bali, who is a gold medalist in postgraduate diploma in journalism and mass communication from Indira Gandhi National Open University, Jammu centre, has said professional and job-oriented courses were the need of the hour in today’s cut-throat competition.

Hardeep, who is from Jammu, was conferred the gold medal for her meritorious performance at the 33rd convocation at the IGNOU headquarters in New Delhi on February 17.

A total of 10,533 students from the Regional Centre, Jammu, were declared successful and eligible to receive diplomas and degree certificates at the function.
