Printcity unveils long distance MBA

The programme will offer a three-stage structure of certificate, diploma and MBA levels, that lead to the award of the prestigious Manchester Business School MBA degree. It will be offered through a combination of distance learning, face-to-face residential sessions and IT support. The course is designed for the working manager. First student intake is set for July 2004.

PrintCity says that until now there has been no high quality MBA programme that is both specifically designed to meet the industry’s needs and to be accessible regardless of geographical location. The groups says that through the co-operation of PrintCity, Manchester Business School and HdM, the industry will have global access to an accredited MBA programme from one of the world’s leading business schools without interrupting a manager’s professional working life.

PrintCity will perform the role of industry liaison for the Print-Media MBA, advising and ensuring that the content of the degree remains completely up to date with latest industry practice. PrintCity comprises many of the industry’s leading players including MAN Roland, Agfa and Adobe, and is best known for its joint participation at drupa and Ipex.
