The Citi Journalistic Excellence Award (CJEA) began in 1982 as a way to recognize journalists for excellence in financial and business reporting in the markets in which Citi does business around the world. The nominees are selected by independent panels Citi assembles. The Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism screens those nominated and selects the winner for each territory. The most prominent aspect of the award is the winners’ participation in an 8-day business and financial seminar in New York City, which is administered by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and sponsored by Citi. The program offers participants rigorous workshops in the principles of accounting and finance, and exposure to institutions, policy makers, and other thought leaders in the United States. Since its inception, more than 340 talented journalists from over 100 media outlets in 39 countries have attended the Seminar.
