Channel 4 And Lord Puttnam Launch New Media MBA

The fact that the creative industries together accounted for £84.1 billion of the economy of the United Kingdom got acknowledgement only in very recent times. So, it was only befitting that it was soon followed by the announcement of a new two year executive MBA with the joining of forces by Lord Puttnam who is an film producer with the distinction of winning an MBA and Channel 4 which is mainly geared towards providing upcoming media bosses the business skills that are needed to be able to thrive in the marketplace globally.
